“Good to have our best defender back” – Newcastle fans react to 22-year-old’s message

Newcastle United welcomed back Chancel Mbemba to the starting line-up as he completed 90 minutes in Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over Burton Albion.

Chancel Mbemba had not played a single minute for Newcastle United since before the African Cup of Nations.

However, in the absence of Ciaran Clark, Benitez opted for an Mbemba recall as the Congolese international partnered Jamaal Lascelles and Grant Hanley was dropped to the bench.

The 22-year-old helped the Magpies keep a clean sheet against Burton Albion as the narrow victory was enough to lift them back to the top of the pile in the Championship and to maintain a ten point lead over third place ahead of an automatic promotion race.

After the match, Chancel Mbemba took to Twitter to thank fans for support and stress that it was an “important victory”.

A number of Newcastle fans responded to Mbemba’s message with positive replies.

Here are a selection of the best.
