Head coach Steve Bruce said: “Calf. We’re not sure if it’s cramp or a tear. The medical department say he does suffer from cramp a little bit. We do hope it’s that.”

Jetro Willems had given Newcastle the lead against the Premier League leaders with a stunning strike with his weaker right foot.

"We didn't see that coming,” said Bruce. “He came in six or six weeks ago, and was thrown in at the deep end. You can see the ability he has got, not many people can do that. Switch, and hit it with his wrong foot."
