Florian Lejeune receives treatment

Karl Darlow has joined Newcastle United's injury list.

The goalkeeper suffered a knock against Nottingham Forest in midweek and is unavailable for tomorrow's game against West Ham United.

Benitez will also be without defensive trio Florian Lejeune, Paul Dummett and DeAndre Yedlin.

"Lejeune is still not ready, Yedlin is not ready," said United manager Benitez. "Also, Darlow has a knock with his thigh, so he won't be on the bench."

Lejeune and Dummett suffered injuries in the club's season-opener against Tottenham Hotspur.

triker Dwight Gayle sat out the Forest game after being laid low with a bug.

Benitez said: "We have to wait on him."
