Rose targeting maiden win against 'difficult' Palace

Danny Rose is aiming to experience his first victory with Newcastle United ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.

The defender missed out on Newcastle's Emirates FA Cup fourth replay win at Oxford United after being unable to register in time but is hopeful the Magpies can achieve a hat-trick of victories in the capital this term following away wins against Rose's parent club, Spurs, and West Ham United.

United's eight-game unbeaten streak came to an end last weekend following a 4-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, which saw all four goals conceded in the final 45 minutes.

Rose, however, believes Newcastle can take confidence from their first-half display against the Gunners heading into Saturday's trip to Selhurst Park against Roy Hodgson's Eagles, who lie directly one point below Newcastle.

"Looking at the fixtures, I think there's only (Manchester) City, Liverpool (and Tottenham) out of the so-called top six who we're playing against," Rose said. "All the other games are teams that we are going to be in and around us. We can achieve anything that we set our minds to and that has to be the spirit and everybody's mindset in winning as many games as possible. 

"That's going to be my mindset. I come from a club that is used to winning, week in week out. That's always been our attitude and I hope I can install that here. I haven't come here to lose games; I've come here to win and to be part of something special.

"Knowing Roy (who handed Rose his international debut with England in 2016), they'll definitely be up for this game. He prides himself and his teams on organisation and discipline so I imagine that Crystal Palace will be organised and very difficult to break down.

"When I was at Tottenham, I didn't enjoy playing against Palace because of how hard they were to break down so I'll be expecting a difficult match and it's one that we have to win.

"I've only been here for three weeks but the first half performance against Arsenal is enough for me to know that we're going to be fine and pick up a lot more wins than defeats towards the end of the season."

Following his arrival on Tyneside three weeks ago, Rose has relished his relationship with head coach Steve Bruce and the 29-year-old is now aiming to tie down a regular place in the senior squad for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.

The left-back is determined to make sure his loan stint with the Magpies, who are currently seven points above the relegation zone, proves to be a successful one. 

Speaking about Steve Bruce, Rose added: "Off the pitch, he's been great with me if I need anything. He told me exactly what he expects from me when I joined. Even before the first game that I played against Norwich, he pulled me aside and said he was going to ease me into it. 

"Even him taking the time just to have that conversation with me was brilliant and it's something that I've missed. I'm willing to fight for him over the next few months and I can't wait to get going.

"The last three months has been a situation that I haven't had since I was 18 or 19 under Harry Redknapp (whilst at Spurs). It brought back a lot of frustration and negativity that I don't want to project or have inside of me. 

"Coming here and seeing how the staff treat you is brilliant. The players as well have been great and it's a feeling that I've missed and, now, I'm going to make the most of it for the next three months and, hopefully, we have a great end to the season."
