Mbemba hobbled off with a foot injury after he blocked a first-half shot.

And Dummett was replaced at the break after complaining of a tight hamstring.

Lascelles was shown a straight red card for bringing down Ross Barkley in the box four minutes into injury time.

Newcastle remain 18th in the Premier League and two points adrift of safety.
