“Don’t think he’ll be a miss tbh” – A lot of Newcastle fans seem to be not worried by the latest injury news on Jamaal Lascelles.

The Newcastle captain has played every league game this season but was substituted in the 20th minute of our 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Callum Wilson appeared to push Lascelles into Martin Dubravka, and the Evening Chronicle is reporting that the 26-year-old will be out until 2020 with suspected knee ligament damage.

Luckily Newcastle have five other players capable of playing centre-back, and we should be able to deal with the loss of Lascelles for the next few weeks.

Both Fabian Schar and Florian Lejeune should be available after the international break meaning that Lascelles’ absence should not affect the team too badly.

Do you think we will miss Lascelles?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Newcastle skipper is a superb organiser and leader, and we will miss those qualities, but the strength of depth we have in defence should be enough to see us through till the skipper returns.

See the best of the reaction below.

These Newcastle fans feel we will cope without Lascelles.

Other Toon supporters are wishing our captain a speedy recovery.
