'I'm only talking to Newcastle': Benitez plays down leaving Magpies

David Moyes

"When I say top 10, I mean guaranteed that you are there and you can challenge for something more important".

"When you talk about the top 10 people say: "You are already in the top 10".

'If we want to achieve something, we have to understand the way to do that.

Supporters chanted "Rafa Benitez, we want you to stay" during the game. For the Blues, that journey of a thousand games began with a single Mick Harford strike in a 1-1 home draw against Oldham Athletic (a club relegated last week to League Two).

If you are out there defending Mike Ashley, then you are not defending the best thing that has happened to Newcastle United since the days of Sir Bobby Robson.

Ashley meanwhile released a statement saying "every penny generated by the club" will be available to Benitez - having made similar comments a year previously.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles says Newcastle must do all they can to keep manager Rafa Benitez at the club and happy.

'They made me some offers to stay here for a few more years, plus I have to manage my family: if I chose to go to Newcastle and stay there, even in the Championship, it's also because of my family.

Significant Movers of Yesterday: Turtle Beach Corporation (HEAR), Alder Biopharmaceuticals Inc. (ALDR)
Coming into 2018, the stock was trading at just $1.81, but closed yesterday at $6.94, and is set to open today at $11.31. The rating scale runs from 1 to 5 with 5 indicating a Strong Sell, 1 indicating a Strong Buy and 3 indicating a Hold.

With the game over as a contest, neither side were prepared to put too much effort into the closing stages and the game naturally petered out, with Newcastle ending the season on a high and Chelsea left needing to regroup ahead of next week's FA Cup final with Manchester United.

This should be greeted in positive fashion by Magpies fans, who have seen Benitez guide their team to tenth in the Premier League in their first season after winning the Championship.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes that taking Jonjo Shelvey to the World Cup is less of a risk than selecting Jack Wilshere.

After we lost our first two games of the season in the Championship, he urged calm and caution.

Perez got in on the act with a scuffed attempt which nearly found the far bottom corner but from Chelsea's perspective, Antonio Conte's men reached the break having failed to register a single shot.

'The transfer window is now very expensive, and you also have to invest in the academy and the training facilities, all these things to enable you to attract players'.

The 20-year-old will have been frustrated after a strong start to the season although Benitez is keen to add him to Newcastle's squad.
