Alex McLeish has revealed that the Blues striker has failed to return from international duty with Ecuador because of a mix-up with flight arrangements.

Benitez had been expected to arrive back in the UK today (Friday) but will now not return until the day of the Arsenal game tomorrow (Saturday).

The Blues boss has vowed to investigate the matter with both Benitez and the Ecuador Football Association.
