Hatem Ben Arfa is confident Newcastle can better last season's top-five finish and even have a say in the title race.

The 25-year-old France international played a key role in the Magpies' surge up the table last time around and is looking for further improvement when the new campaign gets underway.

Manager Alan Pardew is yet to land one of his main summer transfer targets, but has been boosted by the fact that none of his stars have, to date, been lured away from Tyneside, and Ben Arfa told the Evening Chronicle: "Maybe if we feel very good, we can finish between fourth and first. Why not? Why can we not say we could be champions?"
