After the news emerged recently that Man United are interested in signing Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, we discussed what The Magpies’ future would be like without their talisman.
The Red Devils are in dire need for a centre-back this season, and are linked with a huge host of players to arrive at Old Trafford. However, with some of those deals falling through, they have apparently turned their attention of Lascelles, who is a central figure in keeping Newcastle up this season.
With that in mind, we asked whether you thought Newcastle could stay up this season without Lascelles, and these were the results:
While the fans are largely divided over this issue, the slight majority believe that The Magpies would face another relegation if Lascelles were to leave St James’ Park in January. Newcastle rely on a very structured and organised defence and Lascelles is at the heart of that; without him they could be in serious trouble.
