Islam Slimani banned for Newcastle's last three games after accepting charge

Newcastle United v Chelsea will be live on Sky Sports Premier League

Newcastle boss Benitez did not disclose the injuries to his winger and centre-back, but suggested that both will miss out as he aims to be careful with them at this stage of the season.

Rafael Benitez says discussions over extending his contract as Newcastle manager will be "tricky".

The Spaniard is minded to stay at St James' Park and has a strong hand after guiding the Geordies to safety in their first season back in the Premier League, a year on from winning instant promotion back to the top flight.

However, Benitez wants assurances over investment, having been left frustrated by Newcastle's failure to land a series of targets in the last three transfer windows.

"We are already talking, and we will see where we are".

I don't want to get the horse in front of the cart until we're knowledgeable enough to know, because we're not informed enough to know right now.

"Nobody was expecting that with five games to go that we could be safe and thinking about the future, so I think it has been a great achievement for a group of players from the Championship to finish in the top 12", said Benitez.

"At Valencia, they said, "We will give you this player and you can make him into a proper player", so sometimes it is negative against me because I can work with players and improve them and they think you do not need to spend too much money".

Now it is more hard, not to run because we had that the other day against West Brom.

'The team was running, it's just to run at the right time.

Newcastle United striker Islam Slimani may well have played his last game for the club after the FA charged him with violent conduct for his kick out at West Brom's Craig Dawson during the 0-1 defeat last weekend.
