Benitez, like many of his fellow bosses, faces a rush this weekend as he prepares his side to face Portsmouth for Saturday´s 12.45pm kick-off.
He told www.leaguemanagers.com: "I am really disappointed with the fixtures that we have because it is more difficult here in England. You play early kick-offs on the Saturday (after internationals) and it is impossible to prepare the team properly."
