Two Newcastle players were conspicuous by their absence at training today.
The club releasing photos of the squad training ahead of the Bournemouth match.
Only 48 hours before the match, the images showed Elias Sorensen had been called up to train with the first team squad.
The 19 year old in tremendous form, having already scored 13 times for the reserves this season.
Altogether, 21 Newcastle players could be seen in the photos, but two first teamers were missing.
As well as longer term injured Florian Lejeune and Jamie Sterry, both Yoshiri Muto and Jonjo Shelvey were missing.
After picking up injuries on Saturday, it is looking all but certain they won’t make the Bournemouth game.
However, Jamaal Lascelles was involved today in the pre-match preparations despite also being forced off against Watford.
