Carvalhal said: "After the game, I don't know if we have achieved one point or lost two, really, especially when I arrive in the dressing room and my players are really upset because there was the feeling that we could win this game".

The striker, who has confirmed his desire to leave St. James' Park, is not expected to remain at the club for very long, with a possible move during the January transfer window likely.

And when asked if Ashley had told him what his budget would be, Benitez said: 'No, we are still working'.

He added: "If someone would come in and could buy, then we would have extra money to go into the market but we don't want to sell anyone who has value for our team". I have heard people talking about our players, but we do not have any offers.

"But we do not want to sell anyone who will add value to the team and we can not loan players if we do not have options to replace them".


Newcastle United have been backed to beat Swansea in the relegation six pointer this weekend, with the club looking at getting further away from the drop zone. "No, it will be a massive game for them and a massive game for us". It would be worse if we were not creating chances.

"It is not a team at the bottom that will come here and say, "We are relegated" and that is it".

Perez should have scored after being played in by Ritchie with 26 minutes gone, but saw his initial effort saved by the keeper and his follow-up blocked by the covering Ki Sung-yueng, and former Swansea midfielder Shelvey curled a 34th-minute free-kick harmless over after Atsu had been felled inches outside the penalty area.

"Let's see game by game".

"My record against Newcastle does not mean we have an advantage for this game", said Carvalhal, who also enjoyed a Hillsborough victory over Benitez last season as the Owls completed a league double over the eventual champions.
