Islam Slimani eyes permanent Newcastle United stay

Rafael Benitez Manager of Newcastle United looks on prior to the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Burnley at St. James Park

Shaw is expected to be part of the squad when Manchester United travel to Newcastle United on Sunday.

"Clark is training - he had a knee problem", said Benitez. "We're trying to improve that, and the competition will be good for them".

He pointed out that not many players have to go through the kind of struggles Shaw had to when he suffered a double fracture on his leg and the former Red Devil is keen to see him continue at Manchester United well until the twilight years of his career. "I don't know, I always liked English football".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed one of his in-form stars is set to be rewarded with a new contract.

"The red card comes, the yellow card comes, the second yellow card comes - we don't need managers to be speaking about this when it's an obvious thing that the referees must take care of it, which I think they try to do".

"I like the feeling of going to Mr [Sir Bobby] Robson's home, I like the Geordies and the stadium but I have lost and drawn a few times there". Slimani is excellent and will do very good things at Newcastle.

"They can't look at a player and say this guy is very talented so I have to protect him. Rafael Benitez knows how to get points, so I think it will be a hard game".

However, Mourinho isn't underestimating Newcastle given his poor record at St James' Park ahead of Sunday's clash.

Newcastle have won just twice in 28 Premier League meetings, most recently at home in 2012 (D7, L19).

While Newcastle haven't actually won either of their two games since, settling for 1-1 draws against both Burnley and Crystal Palace, Kenedy's attacking flair and endeavor has not been lost on the fans or the manager.

A 2-0 victory over Huddersfield last week, in which new signing Alexis Sanchez was outstanding, helped United make minor inroads into Manchester City's colossal lead, although the gap was still 13 points going into this weekend's fixtures. To let the top players play with freedom?

Manchester United have kept clean sheets in five of their last six Premier League games.

However, Sanchez has played four Premier League games against Newcastle without scoring.

Probability of away win: 57%.
