Newcastle will have to do without two key defenders once again with Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune still out.
The defensive duo started the season opener against Tottenham—a 2-0 home loss—but left with injury and have not played since. Lejeune, who was expected to return this week, will now sit out as he fights off an ankle injury. However, Benitez said the club is more than comfortable with Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark at the back: "More or less the same situation, everybody's fine. Lejeune's having treatment. We're really pleased signing him. He was unlucky with the injury, but (Ciaran) Clark and (Jamaal) Lascelles are doing well, so he has to wait, but he's pushing and creating problems for my decisions every week."
