  • Newcastle beat Fulham 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon
  • Bruno Guimaraes twisted his ankle early in the game
  • He tried to continue playing but had to stop the game at the break

Bruno Guimaraes was in tears as he was forced to leave the pitch early after suffering an injury in the opening stages of Newcastle’s game against Fulham on Sunday.

The Brazilian midfielder twisted his ankle early in the game but tried to continue and was treated twice by medical staff.

When the half-time whistle blew, however, a desolate Guimaraes had to be comforted by teammates as the teams made their way down the tunnel.

And it was soon confirmed he would no longer take part in the game, which Newcastle won thanks to a late goal from Alexander Isak.

Guimaraes was later spotted on crutches after full-time and manager Eddie Howe admitted he was “concerned” about the injury.

The record signing put Newcastle back in the Premier League top 3 after old boy Aleksandar Mitrovic kicked up his lines for Fulham.

The £60m striker’s third goal for the club secured a hard-fought 1-0 win at St James’ Park but only after one-time Tyneside favorite Mitrovic ruled out a successful penalty for a double contact.

Eddie Howe’s men, who controversially included Joelinton in their starting line-up despite his midweek arrest for drunk driving, pushed Manchester United back to third place in the table after extending their unbeaten league run to 14 games.

However, Fulham can feel badly after frustrating their hosts for long periods and repeatedly threatening them on the counter.
