Aleksandar Mitrovic is targeting victory at Manchester City to confirm Newcastle's emergence from their early-season doldrums after a thrilling draw with Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Magpies brought an end to a dismal four-game losing streak by battling to within four minutes of victory over Jose Mourinho's men at St James' Park on Saturday evening before having to settle for a 2-2 draw.

While there was disappointment on Tyneside on the final whistle, there was also renewed belief and a sense that head coach Steve McClaren's pleas for patience might just have some merit.

Mitrovic said: "This game is very good for our confidence. We saw tonight we can play against big teams. We need to work this week very hard.

"We have a very difficult game, maybe more difficult than (Chelsea), against City on Saturday, but we need to believe.

"As I said, we will work hard all week and we need to go there with confidence and try to win the game."
