Speaking to local media, Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles said his bit on the fall out after the abuse of Newcastle keeper Matz Sels.

Whether it was right or wrong for Sels to take the abuse that social media can dish out behind the invisible wall, seriously, is not up for debate. The bigger issue is.

That being the responsibility for any mistake being a team one not an individual.

Lascelles spoke to The Chronicle and clarified the thoughts on it.

He said: Goalkeepers are like defenders, whenever we make a mistake it gets blown up out or proportion. Much more than when a striker misses a chance.

Nobody was to blame, he`s kept clean sheets this season and has been excellent. He wasn`t at fault for the goal as there were a build-up of mistakes before that.

Nobody is on his back and we will take it as a team. Whenever a goal is conceded we won`t point fingers at individuals. We will deal with it as a team and correct it in training.
