Benitez's cagey response when asked about potential January transfer targets for Newcastle

Newcastle, beaten 1-0 by Burnley on Monday night, are ninth in the Premier League table.

Replays show Gayle was just level as Matt Ritchie struck to hit the post before the striker rolled the ball home, and though despondent manager Benitez was clearly unhappy with the officials, he kept his own counsel when asked about the disallowed goal.

Newcastle play host to Bournemouth on Saturday, with Rafael Benitez's men looking to return to winning form following a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley.

Had we taken a couple of those chances the officials giving every 50/50 Bournemouth's way wouldn't have mattered - but we didn't and it did.

The Premier League takes a break for worldwide games after this weekend so I always feel it must be even tougher to stomach a defeat when you know you'll have to wait an extra week to play again.

So far Saivet has made only one appearance for Newcastle this campaign, that coming in the 3-2 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forrest in the second round of the Carabao Cup. Benitez's team are ordinary, recently promoted from the Sky Bet Championship and aiming to consolidate, and if one or two players dip beneath the peak of their work-rate, they will tend to lose. It...

Benitez, who saw captain Jamaal Lascelles leave the stadium on crutches with an ankle injury, said: "From September 1, I was anxious and what I did was to work harder, and that is what I will do now".

"Back-to-back away wins are huge, our record has not been good".
