Nominally a centre-back, though one who can fill in at right-back, Lascelles was made the club's skipper by manager Rafael Benitez following their relegation from the Premier League in 2016.

Newcastle United earned a crucial 2-1 win over Stoke City at St James' Park on Saturday.

Lascelles bagged the victor against Stoke on Saturday, his second winning goal in as many games, after also scoring an nearly identical header to earn all three points against Swansea the week before.

Few chances were to follow in the following quarter of an hour but, on 19 minutes, Ritchie whipped a cross towards the back post where Atsu got the better of Mame Biram Diouf to slot home and score his first ever Premier League goal. Ayoze Perez's industry had won the ball from Joe Allen and the vision of Mikel Merino and Isaac Hayden to move it on to Matt Ritchie provided him with the opportunity to produce an inviting cross which was not wasted.
