Newcastle United fans divided over quality of Dummett

One area of the Newcastle United team that was not addressed in the summer was at left-back.

Rafael Benitez once again had a frustrating window in which he was in the dar over transfer funds.

In the end, the Spaniard brought in additions to central defence, midfield and attack.

However, question marks still remain over the left-back options, of which there are very few.

Paul Dummett is currently first choice, but if the 26-year-old suffers an injury, Benitez does not have much quality to call upon as a replacement.

On Twitter, supporters have proven that there is a divide among the fanbase.

The Premier League season has not kicked off in the best way for Newcastle as they are yet to pick up a victory.

Benitez’s men were beaten 2-1 by Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend of the season, and they followed that up with a goalless draw against Cardiff City.

On Sunday, the Magpies put in a strong display for the visit of Chelsea to St James’ Park, but in the end they suffered a 2-1 loss.
