Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez on whether he will watch Brighton attempt to secure the Sky Bet Championship title on Saturday: "I don't think so. I will try to enjoy (time) with the family if I can. I can not do anything, so why do I have to be there suffering or not suffering? Maybe someone will call me after and say 'they did this or they did that'. But no problem.

On their 14th away league victory of the season - a club record: "The players have been doing so well the whole season, especially away, that it was a pity not to break the record before.

"So to do this after promotion, and be closer to Brighton, I think is quite positive for everyone at Newcastle. We did our job and we are happy with that. The fans are delighted and can go back happy.

"I was pleased with the reaction of the players, especially after we gave them the day off after the promotion as it is more difficult to control what they can do. But they were quite focused and you could see (in the) second half we played very good football."
