Newcastle United midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has said that the team will need time to gel after a summer of change at the club.
The Dutchman was one of five new arrivals at St James' Park, along with head coach Steve McClaren, who is embarking on his first season in charge.
The Magpies sit 19th in the Premier League after their opening four games, but Wijnaldum is confident that they will come good as the campaign progresses.
"We have good players but now we must make sure we show we are a good team," he told The Chronicle.
"When a lot of players come to a club, it can be difficult to gel because you don't know each other properly. However, we are going train hard to make sure we do know each other. Then we can be a big team going forward.
"We are focused on everything. You have to have confidence going forward and feel you can win a trophy. We have that chance here."
Newcastle resume their campaign away at West Ham United on September 14.
