Another Premier League burglary as Newcastle star Joelinton has house robbed during Manchester City clash

The Brazilian and his family watched on from the stands at St. James' Park as he recovers from a thigh problem. They saw the Magpies fall to an agonising 3-2 loss to the reigning champions, but their experience went from bad to worse after full time. The Daily Mail reports that Joelinton received an alert during the match that intruders were entering his home. Police were informed and a helicopter was dispatched.

As the statement mentions, Joelinton and his family weren't home for the burglary, luck which wasn't bestowed upon Saturday's opponent Jack Grealish. The City winger was robbed of £1 million ($1.27m) in jewellery on Boxing Day at his home in Cheshire, with his fiancee and family unfortunately inside during said raid. It continues a line of Premier League burglaries in recent months, with Kevin De Bruyne, Victor Lindelof and Joao Cancelo - during his time at City - all robbed in the past year.
