Ryder recently tweeted an injury update about Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden. The update stated that the former Arsenal man has been ruled out of the rest of the season because of the injury that he suffered against Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend.
Do you think Hayden's injury will impact Newcastle's survival?
Ryder’s tweet drew the attention of numerous Newcastle fans, who made their opinion clear about the Englishman’s injury.
What did Newcastle fans make of the injury update?
“Think that was his last game for us, can’t see him playing in Championship again next season.”
“Least there’s no surgery. Please one of the Longstaffs in midfield instead of Hendrick though.“
Against Brighton, it was Yves Bissouma who had inflicted the injury upon Hayden, even though the action was not deliberate from the Seagulls midfielder.
After the game, Steve Bruce revealed that Hayden had sustained a knee injury and it wasn’t looking good for him. The midfielder later tweeted about the injury, saying how ‘gutted’ he was and that he will do his utmost to return soon.
A lot of Newcastle fans are disappointed about Hayden’s injury and they believe that this is a blow to the team. The Magpies already have Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Fabian Schar out due to injury.
On top of that, only eight Newcastle players have picked up a better rating than Hayden in the current campaign. Their form has been poor in recent weeks and they’re edging closer to the relegation zone. So losing Hayden for the rest of the season might just be a significant blow to their survival in the Premier League.
