Two of the newly promoted sides to the Premier League will face off as Huddersfield Town host Newcastle United in the West Yorkshire town.

Asked if he had had to lower his sights this season after missing out on key targets, Benitez said: "I'm analysing my squad and analysing the other teams also, and I have more or less the same idea that I had before".

Manager Benitez was at pains not to criticise his player in public at his prematch news conference on Friday afternoon, but admitted only Shelvey, who served a five-match ban last season for racially abusing Wolves player Romain Saiss, could address the problem. We have been working on that and so is he.

"But you can not compare Liverpool with us". The situation is not what you are expecting, so you have to keep going to give the right message. Not really. I've dealt with Lee for this previous year and-a-half and I don't need much contact (with Ashley) if I have Lee there.

"We will talk about the situation later".

Huddersfield boss David Wagner has stressed the importance of the club's fans producing an "extraordinary atmosphere" that will help the players do the "dirty yards" in Sunday's historic clash with Newcastle.

Huddersfield Town beat Crystal Palace away from home on the opening day of the season meaning that they now sit near the top of the table.

"You've not seen too much of him at Stoke, but he's played in top leagues", Benitez said of his countryman Joselu.

Mounie made a memorable debut in Premier League as he scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Palace.

The club even blocked Rafa's moves for free agent Willy Caballero and loan signing Tammy Abraham, due to the wages involved, so if say Newcastle had brought in a striker and attacking midfielder for £15m+ each, can you believe that Ashley would have allowed those deals to happen and wages to be paid?

"Brighton and Huddersfield are fantastic clubs, but if they stay in the Premier League, everyone will be over the moon".
