Eddie Howe has officially been unveiled as Newcastle boss after much speculation, signing a deal at St James’ Park until 2024.
Xavi has been confirmed as Barcelona’s new manager while it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will live to fight another day at Manchester United.
The West Ham dream continues, meanwhile, with their 3-2 win over Liverpool taking them third in the Premier League.
Manager David Moyes is working miracles and was even afforded a guard of honour by his bosses, David Gold revealed to talkSPORT, after the win that ended Liverpool’s unbeaten run.
Arsenal are also in great form and one of their key players, Emile Smith Rowe, has been handed a senior England call-up.
Things are not going as well at Aston Villa and Norwich, though, with the two struggling clubs on the hunt for a new manager.
Jack Wilshere believes Newcastle can push for the top six under Eddie Howe’s tutelage, after the ex-Bournemouth boss took the reins at St James’ Park on Monday lunchtime.
Wilshere, who played under Howe at the Cherries, says that the 43-year-old has all the right attributes to replicate what he did on the south coast at Newcastle.
“I worked with him at a club that I see now are quite similar to Newcastle – not in terms of the size of the club, but in terms of the players,” Wilshere told talkSPORT.
“Newcastle have got a few ex-Bournemouth players and that is what Eddie does, he gets the best out of those types of players, gets them going and he gets the fans on side.
“He’s a great manager.
“I think he deserves a chance. If he goes in and does really well, in a few years they could be pushing the top six, which I think he can do.
“When I played under him at Bournemouth we arguably had a worse squad and we finished ninth, so he can definitely do that.
“It’s down to him when he gets that chance to take them to the next level.”
