Eddie Howe confirms five Newcastle United stars out for West Ham United clash

Newcastle United’s latest injury concern comes ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to West Ham United.
Newcastle United will make another late decision on Callum Wilson and Joelinton’s health ahead of their Premier League trip to West Ham United on Sunday (kick-off 2pm).


Both players were absent from the thrilling midweek Champions League triumph over Paris Saint-Germain, which was secured by goals from Miguel Almiron, Dan Burn, Sean Longstaf, and Fabian Schar.
Wilson has missed the last three games against Manchester City, Burnley, and PSG due to hamstring stiffness, while Joelinton missed the latter after suffering a similar problem just four minutes after coming on as a substitute against the Clarets.


When asked about the injury situation, Howe stated, “The injury list doesn’t look great, but apart from Harvey

[Harvey Barnes], I don’t think there’s anything long-term there, but maybe some short-term pain for us.” We’ll see how Callum [Wilson] and Joelinton are. They’re most likely the nearest.

“Anthony [Gordon] has been suspended, which is another setback for us.” Sven [Botman] isn’t going to make it.”

Wilson has 12 Premier League goals in 13 games versus West Ham, but Howe may be forced to stick with club-record acquisition Alexander Isak.


Howe will be without in-form winger Anthony Gordon, who has had five yellow cards this season. While Emil Krafth recovers from an ACL injury, Harvey Barnes and Joe Willock remain out.

In anticipation of the trip to the London Stadium, Howe has asked his players to refocus swiftly after Wednesday’s success against the French champions.


“The interaction we have with the players in the next couple of days is going to be really important to reset the mindset of what we want to do in this game,” explained Howe.

“You can never live in the past, and PSG is one.” You have the ability to influence the future and hence influence your next game and performance. Mentally, I’ve already gone on. Our players need to do it quickly and move on all over again.”
