Rafa Benitez Refuses To Blame Ghana Over Christian Atsu Injury

Rafa Benitez Refuses To Blame Ghana Over Christian Atsu Injury

Despite taking the lead and then crashing 4-1, Rob Elliot believes "We will have a lot more positives than negatives" if the team play like that, as they won't run into Manchester United every week.

Mid-table United entertain Watford at St James's Park on Saturday.

The Mirror have reported that the Spanish coach is still angry over the lack of activity last summer, and expects the club to spend more freely in January.

Newcastle now sit in 11th place in the Premier League following their promotion from the Championship last season, but have suffered three successive defeats.

Benitez and Toon chiefs are also looking at the loan market as they attempt to identify and recruit players to help bolster the squad. Pogba and Gerrard are very different players anyway.

"Dwight Gayle hasn't had a lot of opportunities this season, but we know what a great striker and finisher he is".

"The point for us is that for the first 30 minutes, we were doing a great job as a team and everybody had the right belief and intensity. It is a tough competition and we know we have to keep improving".

"This time, you see the difference between money spent", Benitez said. We had to be higher and more open in the second half, and they have the pace, strength and physicality to punish you.

"Pogba is not my player, so I don't need to talk too much about him".

"We have played 4-4-2 at Old Trafford, so we wanted to get on the front foot and control things as best we could by getting after them. Any time you make a mistake, you can pay for that, and that is what happened". "We have to keep working as hard as (against Man United)".

"We made an excellent start for the first 30 minutes or so, but then obviously they got the first goal and then that swung the momentum to them".

"It's not something we didn't know, we knew it would make a massive difference between both teams".

Benitez has low expectations about the resources available to him this winter.
