Steve Bruce gives Willems injury update after Chelsea


Newcastle edge past Chelsea

Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off saw Chelsea travel to Newcastle United.

The Blues have been much more effective away from Stamford Bridge this term and a win for Chelsea did seem the more likely outcome on Saturday.

However, Frank Lampard’s side would struggle to penetrate a resilient Newcastle defence.

Chelsea had 70 percent of the possession vs the Magpies but they were unable to make that dominance count.

Newcastle would then go on to nick a 1-0 victory in second-half injury time.

Isaac Hayden’s glancing header in the 94th minute ensured Chelsea left St James’ Park without a single point.

The North East outfit are now 12th in the PL, seven points clear of the bottom three.

Highlights: Newcastle 1-Chelsea 0

Newcaste boss Steve Bruce on Jetro Willems

And while a 1-0 victory over Chelsea is a big positive for Newcastle, they were dealt one blow on Saturday.

Jetro Willems has been a key figure for Newcastle this term, notching up 19 PL appearances.

However, the full-back was stretchered off just 12 minutes into Newcastle’s win over Chelsea.

Steve Bruce has since provided an update on the full-back and it doesn’t sound too positive:

“It looks a horrendous injury for Jetro, which is a big blow to us. It doesn’t look great with Paul Dummett either so in that area in particular, all of a sudden, within four or five days we’ve got a problem.

“We fear it’s his cruciate.

“We’re due a bit of luck. I’ve never known anything quite like it over the last few weeks so we’re due.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
