You can say many things like the 94 minutes, but it will not change what happened.

'Martin was talking about more protection, Jamaal was saying that maybe Martin could deal with the cross in another way, ' Benitez said.

Benitez did however concede that his goalkeeper could have been stronger.

'For us, it's another bad way to concede and that's it'.

Wins for Cardiff and Burnley over the weekend didn't help the Magpies' cause with Rafa Benitez's side now only outside the bottom three on goal difference. You have to protect the keeper.

"It was not very clear on the replay, but we have to defend the cross better".

Some residents of Belushya Guba took to social media to show their own video and photos of the bears, and express their shock. But government officials said that they may have to cull these polar bears to ensure the safety of the local population.

Benitez and his players flew to Spain after the game for a five-day training camp and a friendly against CSKA Moscow on Saturday.

"Until the referee whistles we keep going".

But, despite conceding late, Newcastle have won seven points from their last four games and also gave Almiron a second-half debut after his £20 million (Dh94.4m) move from Atlanta last month.

"I'm pleased. That's something we have to keep doing, showing this character".

"It's not about the point, the story of the game could have been different as the first half was totally controlled". I'm happy with a lot of things but disappointed with how we conceded.

Newcastle will be looking for a huge three points in their battle against relegation when they travel to Molineux on Monday night.
