Christian Atsu says that Newcastle United must “learn from their mistakes” following the 2-0 loss at home to Wolves.

The Ghanaian international, who is on loan from Chelsea, was introduced as a second half substitute alongside Aleksandar Mitrovic after an own goal from Chancel Mbemba and a Helder Costa goal after the break had put the visitors in front.

It was the first time the 24-year-old had played at St. James' Park, having made his bow for the club in the 6-0 win at Queens Park Rangers in midweek.

“I made my debut but we lost the game, and we were fighting to win in front of our fans, but we have to be mentally strong," Atsu said.

“It was great to make my home debut, they are fantastic fans and I’m happy I made my home debut, but right now we have to focus on the next game, which is what is important now.

“It’s good to play in front of our fans.

“It’s unfortunate that we lost today’s game, but the next game is coming and we want to make them happy.

“Everyone is down after the game, but the manager spoke with us and we have to have the mentality to win the next game, which is important.

“We learn from our mistakes, and we have to give our best for the fans because they deserve it.

“This is football, and this is what the Championship is about.

“Each and every day you have to focus and work so hard, because if you lose concentration, you pay for it.”

Atsu feels that Newcastle must now prove they are mentally strong for the next game too.

He told “This is where we need the players to be mentally strong.

“When you play for a big club like Newcastle, these kind of situations will come your way, but that’s why we are here - to deal with it. We are all focused on the next game.

“Cup games are not like the league that we are playing in. If you don’t score, you’re going out, so it’s very important that we win.

“It’s a must-win game. We want to stay in the cup. To beat someone two times (in four days) is difficult, but we will learn from our mistakes.

“We are going to play against them on Tuesday and it’s another chance for us to prove, on the pitch in front of our fans, that we can win.

“You cannot deal with the past, you cannot change the past.

“Right now, we have to focus on the next game. We can make a better future, which is more important.”
