The attacking midfielder played all of the the 2-2 draw with Everton on the opening day of the Premier League season.

But Bennett is struggling with a knee injury and now faces a fitness battle before he can return to the side.

"We have some bad news on Elliott Bennett. He has a problem with his knee that will keep him out for a few months," said Hughton.

"Losing Elliott is a big blow for us. It's really bad news for the player first and foremost because I felt he did well against Everton.

"He played the game on Saturday but didn't have a great reaction and we have since found that there was a knee problem that was operated on.

"It will keep him out for a number of months."

Bennett has been using social network and despite the injury setback, he is determined to return an improved player.

"Gutted to be out with a knee injury," he said. "Luckily I have great medical staff at club and best people around me to get me through this tough time.

"Will use this bad time to improve, I will come back stronger, faster and better as a player and a person. Thanks for your messages!"

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
