Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles picked up an ankle problem during his team’s 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
The centre-back was forced off early in the second half of the Premier League match, which ended in disappointment for the Magpies after they conceded a late goal.
After the match, Lascelles revealed that he would undergo a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the problem, which could keep him on the sidelines for a few weeks.
The Newcastle supporters were out in force on Twitter to wish their captain a speedy recovery.
Lascelles has not always been the most popular of figures at Newcastle, but the 23-year-old has weighed up with two Premier League goals this season, and has impressed at the heart of the defence.
The Magpies have now lost their last two Premier League matches 1-0 after a decent run of form, and the club’s supporters are hopeful of some good news when Lascelles has a scan at the start of next week.
