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!"

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
