“And there is the problem” – A lot of Newcastle fans are gutted that Matt Ritchie has injured his hamstring and is a huge doubt for the Premier League opener against Arsenal.

The Scottish international would have probably started against the Gunners – but he was withdrawn after just 11 minutes in the Toon’s 3-1 win over Hibernian.

The 29-year-old was replaced by Rolando Aarons – who provided an assist for Jamaal Lascelles.

Ritchie, though will be a big miss – he is one of Newcastle’s leaders on the pitch and last season he re-invented himself as left-wing-back.

The move was a success as in 18 games Ritchie scored once and provided six assists.

Newcastle will hope that the injury is not too bad – as they are light for cover in that position.

These Newcastle fans are now worried about the left-wing-back role.
