Forward Islam Slimani is widely expected to make his Newcastle debut in Gameweek 28 against Bournemouth.
The Leicester City forward arrived on loan in a Deadline Day move but has yet to feature for the Magpies due to a minor thigh injury. Rather than risking Slimani in a surprise 1-0 win against Manchester United over the weekend, Benitez said he would rather give Slimani, who is likely to become the club's No. 1 option up top, the next two weeks to build fitness during the FA Cup break before the trip to Bournemouth next Saturday. "He was fine, but he was still feeling it a little bit. It was a case of waiting because we have 15 days now before the next game so we can keep working with him." Feb 14 - 7:20 PM
