Newcastle United: Charlie Bennett reacts to Adam Webster team news

Newcastle United: Charlie Bennett reacts to Adam Webster team news -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United journalist Charlie Bennett has given his reaction to the news that Adam Webster has now been ruled out for Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Lowdown: Good chance

Given the recent form of the two teams, and the fact that they are playing at home, the St. James’ Park faithful should feel as if they have a good chance of picking up all three points this afternoon.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

Of course, it may come down to who is available for both sides, with Allan Saint-Maximin still a doubt for the hosts.

The Latest: Webster out

Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match, Graham Potter has revealed that Webster will definitely miss out.

Taking to Twitter, The Chronicle reporter Bennett has claimed that losing him is a ‘huge blow‘ for the Seagulls.

The Verdict: Boost

The loss of Webster will no doubt have the opposite effect for the North East club and should give them a boost going into the clash.

The central defender has missed their last two fixtures in the Premier League, in which Potter’s men have lost both and conceded five in the process.

Should Newcastle sign Webster?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He can be a real threat in both boxes, already notching up two goals this season, while he ranks highly among his teammates in terms of aerial duels won, interceptions, clearances, blocks, passes and long balls per game (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, the Tyneside outfit know how good he is and thus much of a loss he will be, having reportedly enquired over his potential signing in the January transfer window, so Chris Wood could be licking his lips looking at the Seagulls’ makeshift defence.
