Rolando Aarons has suffered an injury in tonight's EFL Cup tie against Cheltenham Town.

The winger was forced off early in the game after pulling up.

Aarons – who has signed a new long-term deal at the club – was wheeled down the tunnel on a stretcher.

Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, back from a four-game ban, had to be substituted later in the first half after suffering a cut above his eye.

Newcastle led 1-0 at the break thanks to a goal from Ayoze Perez.
