Another young member of Newcastle United’s side, and the club captain, Jamaal Lascelles struggled to earn opportunities in his early days in the Premier League but was handed openings during the back-end of Newcastle’s relegation season under Rafael Benitez.

Prior to Newcastle’s Championship winning season, Benitez made Lascelles the captain and he’s impressed since. Lascelles has appeared in 43 of the Magpies’ 46 league games this season, 41 of which have come as a starter.
