Rafa Benitez remains coy on the availability of Jamaal Lascelles. However, the United boss did hint that the defender is likely to miss the trip to Old Trafford when the Premier League fixtures resume.
The centre-back picked up a knock during the opening exchanges of a hard fought encounter with Bournemouth last Saturday, but the patched up Newcastle captain was able to soldier on, before eventually being forced off due to an ankle problem after 55 minutes. Concerns began to grow on Tyneside after Lascelles was spotted leaving St James’ Park on crutches with his right leg in a protective boot, although the precise nature of his injury is not yet known. "He’s been working with the physios and getting a little bit better, but it’s slow," Benitez told local newspaper the Shields Gazette. "We have to wait a couple of days, and then without inflammation we’ll see how it is." However, Rafa went onto add that it would be "very difficult" for Lascelles to be ready for game week 12 with Ciaran Clark poised to deputise. Nov 9 - 5:07 AM
