Lucas gave away a late penalty which striker Mido converted to deny Rafa Benitez’s men three points.

But the Brazilian midfielder says don’t rule them out just yet. He told the BBC, “If we don’t believe, then who will? We believe because we have a good squad and a good manager. Maybe we have to start taking our chances, but unfortunately I conceded a penalty.
“It’s frustrating for everybody, we were maybe two or three points ahead of the other teams at the end of the year.
“Things will change if we work hard but of course we know we are drawing too much and we know we have to win the next game.”
