Newcastle United shockingly beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge a couple of days ago and Bruce’s team is standing steadily in the middle of the table.

However, the Chelsea win came at a big cost.

Jetro Willems suffered an ACL injury, that could see him out of action for six to nine months, according to VL.

This means that the Dutchman will miss the Euro. It’s horrible news for the Netherlands who already lost Memphis Depay for the tournament.

Willems scored and assisted two goals this season, heavily contributing to the Magpies’ successes.
