Wolverhampton Wanderers's three-game winning in the Premier League was halted after playing to a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Benitez was also riled when his side were defeated 2-1 by Wolves in December, losing to another stoppage-time goal.

After a scoreless opening 45 minutes, the visitors broke the deadlock on 55 minutes thanks to a strike from Isaac Hayden.

Rafael Benitez has revealed what was said in the row between Martin Dubravka and Jamaal Lascelles after Newcastle United conceded a late equaliser against Wolves on Monday evening.


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

When asked if Newcastle should have had a free-kick after Boly's challenge, the Spaniard added: "In England they don't understand the rules so you can say whatever you want to say". You can say many things like the 94 minutes, but it will not change what happened. Newcastle, as always, seem poised to either really do something cool or just be a disappointment to everybody, with 24 points they are only above the relegation places on goal difference so all in all this is a bigger night for Rafa B than Nuno Espírito Santo.

"The first game we had a player with a broken nose, we conceded in the last minute and we should have had a penalty and there should have been a red card, but nobody said anything". You have to protect the keeper. "We have been here for years, and it's very hard to explain that".
