Massadio Haidara replaced Mathieu Debuchy after just 13 minutes at DW Stadium. 14 minutes later it was Haidara who had to come off, thanks to this horrific challenge by Callum McManaman.
The a screen grab of the ‘tackle’ gives a better indication of just how bad this was.
Haidara is already on his way back to Newcastle for more tests. McManaman didn’t receive a yellow card for a challenge that deserved red. At halftime Newcastle assistant John Carver confronted the Wigan forward and had to be restrained as the two sides walked to the tunnel. I don’t blame him.
