Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez admits that his side's stoppage-time defeat at home to struggling Bournemouth is hard to take.

Howe felt that Christian Atsu - who didn't play a league game for Bournemouth during a half-season loan at the Vitality Stadium - was one of Newcastle's most unsafe players.

"I will not talk about the decisions because I am not very happy with the decisions", Benitez said in his press conference, having told Sky Sports earlier: "I think we lost, that's it, and we'll have to analyse". I thought (Dwight) Gayle was a handful, and Atsu did very well.

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, playing at St James Park against Bournemouth, you'd probably expect them to win".

When Weinstein returned from Paris, he invited her to his residence, which had children's drawings on display, she said. Once back in Los Angeles, Malthe said Weinstein called her to check in about a role she was training and preparing for.


Jacob Murphy replaced Christian Atsu with the score at 0-0 and with eight minutes remaining, but his brief cameo appearance did not have the desired effect on his Newcastle side, and ultimately they ended up conceding an agonising victor.

"We knew it was going to be a tight game, maybe one goal deciding it".

Benitez, who did manage to acquire the services of forward Joselu from Stoke City before the window slammed shut, has revealed the club were close to signing Abraham but they were unable to get the deal over the line.

"It was a massive relief", said Cook.

"We have created chances in every game, you have to score".
