It’s looking like Aleksandar Mitrovic will get a three match ban because of the elbow he gave to Lanzini in the second half of the game yesterday when we took West Ham apart 3-0.
And it will take effect when the two-week International break is over two weeks time when we are at Swansea.
Rafa has had issues with Mitro before which is probably one reason he will eventually sell him but not this summer, simply because we don’t have enough strikers in the ranks.
And hopefully we will be bringing in another striker in the next week so we will not miss Mitro too much, but the 22-year-old has to cut this kind of nonsense out on the pitch.

Here are some typical reactions on Twitter from Newcastle fans about the incident.
Breaking: Jonjo Shelvey to get 50% discount if he brings Aleksandar Mitrovic with him to the Anger Therapy. #NUFC

This is the thing on mitrovic, everyone gets hyped up about him when he has one or two good games, gets started and doesn’t perform. #NUFC

Well known that I’m a big Mitrovic fan but if he gets charged and gets a 3 game ban he deserves every bit of criticism coming his way #NUFC

That elbow by Mitrovic is exactly why Rafa wants rid! Idiot who can’t be trusted #NUFC

What is it with our players, Shelvey last week, Mitrovic this week? Stupidity letting the fans down and overshadowing performances. #nufc

Mitrovic may have scored but what the hell is he doing with that elbow. Stupidity of highest level. Deserves a ban #nufc

Well that’s Mitrovic banned for 3 games. Rafa had trust issues with him apparently. Wonder why ? #nufc
