Major official Newcastle United injury update on Tuesday – Ahead of Manchester United match
Tuesday morning has seen an official Newcastle United injury update delivered.
NUFC up against Man U.
Am 8.15pm kick-off at Old Trafford.
Newcastle United facing a Man U side who are really struggling and a manager in Erik ten Hag under serious pressure.
Whilst for Eddie Howe, hoping to build on a very promising last seven or so weeks.
Wins over Palace, PSG, Burnley, Manchester City, Sheffield United and Brentford, plus draws at Molineux, London Stadium and the San Siro. With only that one unlucky defeat in the last ten matches to Borussia Dortmund.
Obviously the big negative has been a growing list of unavailable players, so how do we stand now ahead of facing Man U?
Speaking on Tuesday morning, Eddie Howe giving official Newcastle United injury update, extra availability info on top of what we already knew, all of which appears to leave things looking like this:
“The timeframe on Sven Botman is unclear at the moment, we are taking it day-by-day with that one.
“Alex Isak we hope will be back after the international break.
“I’m not expecting anyone back that we didn’t already have available for Wolves.”
As had become more and more expected, the striker back for Chelsea at home in late November at the earliest.
Whether he has surgery or not, I doubt we will see him ahead of 2024.
This morning’s update making clear it will be that Chelsea game at the earliest also for the defender.
Recovering from glandular fever and another hopefully after the November international break.
It was expected to be the new year with his foot injury, Eddie Howe though last week said possibly late December.
Last Friday morning the Head Coach updating, saying we are looking at a couple of months absence for Anderson with a back problem.
His ban has now started, so he can’t play again until 27 August 2024.
