Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles could miss the remainder of the season after suffering a suspected stress fracture of his foot.
The defender picked up the injury during Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Spurs but both he and medical staff believed it to be nothing more than a knock.
However, Lascelles’ condition has deteriorated during the course of the week and he will miss Sunday’s trip to Burnley, and possibly beyond.
