Fantasy managers have been left sweating on the fitness of Chancel Mbemba after the Newcastle United defender picked up an injury while on international duty.
The 23-year-old has responded admirably to Rafa’s S.O.S. call after the Geordies lost two defenders during the opening weekend defeat to Tottenham. While Mbemba was one of the few shining lights for Newcastle at Huddersfield, it was his performance six days later which won him plaudits for an assured display in the 3-0 win over West Ham. A clean-sheet plus maximum bonus points made the budget defender - at only £4 million - the go to bargain buy heading into game week four. However, having scored the opening goal in his country's World Cup qualifier against Tunisia, he was forced off with less than an hour on the clock making him an early doubt for the trip to Swansea. The precise nature, and extent of the problem, won’t be known until Mbemba arrives back on Tyneside within the next 24-48 hours. Sep 6 - 5:52 AM
