Steve Bruce reveals Jamaal Lascelles is a ‘major concern’ ahead of trip to Premier League leaders Everton after sustaining foot injury in Wolves draw

  • Newcastle Jamaal Lascelles is a major doubt for away trip to Everton on Sunday 
  • The centre-back came off in 1-1 draw with Wolves after sustaining a foot injury 
  • Boss Steve Bruce said it is ‘refreshing’ that their opponents are top of the table 

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce revealed captain Jamaal Lascelles is a major doubt for the Premier League visit of table-topping Everton on Sunday afternoon.

The centre-back was withdrawn in the closing stages of last week’s 1-1 draw at Wolves because of a foot injury that leaves him touch and go to face the early pace-setters in the league.

Bruce said: ‘We’ve only got one major concern from last week: the captain, who limped off. He’s got a foot injury and we’ll see how he is in the next 48 hours. But everyone else is OK.’

The Longstaff brothers – Matty and Sean – are available following a thigh complaint and a bout of tonsillitis respectively.

Bruce added: ‘The one thing they do do is bring energy and leg work to the team and of course they’re both very, very decent passers of the ball too.

‘There’s many times where I’ve played them together. They’ve both got something to offer.’

Looking ahead to Everton’s trip to St James’ Park, Bruce added: ‘I’m really pleased that there’s somebody else different at the top of the league, how refreshing is that? It’s wonderful.

‘I’m a big huge admirer of (Toffees boss) Carlo Ancelotti and what he’s achieved so it will be a tough, tough game for us, that’s for sure.’
