"I am the manager, I concentrate on the football and ensure my players concentrate on what happens in the game against Crystal Palace. The fans will be excited of course but that will not have influence on how I behave."

Benitez believes that the club is in good standing, in terms progress and getting back to being one of the big forces in the Premier League.

"We have a good team with young players and they are improving. I am positive in terms of what we can achieve." He said

Concerning Andros Townsend and the game against Crystal Palace he said
"I had a meeting with him and we spoke. I wanted to keep him. Sometimes the Premier League is too attractive.
