Rafa Benitez hopes Florian Lejeune's return to full fitness can help Newcastle United adapt their playing style - and turnaround their woeful home form in the process.

Due to Lejeune's composure in possession and ability to play the ball out from the back, Benitez is confident the Magpies can start to adapt their style in order to build a greater number of attacks from defence.

With relegation rivals Cardiff City up next in the Premier League on Saturday - the Bluebirds leapfrogged Newcastle at the weekend, with United slipping back into the bottom three as a result - Lejeune's return to action could not have come at a more opportune time for the struggling Magpies.

“We know this is a difficult month for us.

This tweak in approach could prove particularly important at St James' Park, where Newcastle have only won twice this season, and may help United breakdown stubborn defences on Tyneside.

The Frenchman made his first Premier League appearance of the season during the Magpies' 2-1 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with the 27-year-old arguably one of Newcastle's stand-out performers in west London.

However, for the most part Longstaff performed admirably given that this was his first start in the top flight, and at a venue such as Stamford Bridge, so Benitez was keen to praise the 21-year-old Newcastle fan for showing he belongs in the United first-team squad.
