Newcastle boss Benitez: No favours for former club Liverpool

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez says his side will be professional and not do his former club Liverpool any favours when they host the title chasers at the weekend.

The Reds are one point behind Premier League leaders Manchester City with two games left, while the Magpies are safe from relegation.

"We are professional and have to do our job," said Benitez.

"My relationship with the city of Liverpool, the club and the fans is there.

"At the same time, I have been to play Liverpool with Chelsea, with Newcastle, and we have to do our job."
