The Magpies have endured a sticky spell since Christmas but remain in contention for European qualification in eighth in the Barclays Premier League.

Newcastle got back to winning ways after three successive defeats with a 3-1 win at West Ham last weekend and Tiote now wants to build momentum.

The Ivory Coast international told reporters: "At the moment we are in a good position.

"We are happy because last year it was not the same.

"Now we can try to win every game. If we keep trying that we can gain a Europa League place or even a Champions League place."
