A lot of Newcastle United fans believe that they are missing Jamaal Lascelles, who is currently out with a knee injury.

The Toon captain was injured during the Magpies’ 2-1 win over Bournemouth, and since then, Newcastle have conceded 15 goals.

Do Newcastle miss Lascelles?

Yes, his leadership qualities are invaluable

No, they have done well until recently

Steve Bruce confirmed in his press conference that Lascelles would be back in contention for Wolves next week, and many Toon fans believe that their defence has suffered without him in the middle of it.

What do we think?

The 26-year-old, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, is a vocal captain and prides himself on getting the best out his teammates while also organising the backline.

Lascelles is also a goal threat with nine goals in his 149 appearances for the Toon.

However, it is not only Lascelles who Newcastle are missing as Ciaran Clark was also playing very well before he suffered an injury.

Bruce, though, could have Clark, Lascelles and Matt Ritchie, all available for the trip to the Black Country where a poor Christmas must quickly be forgotten about.
