Newcastle injury list in full as Eddie Howe hopes for positive news

The Magpies are hoping that some of their injury concerns will be resolved before the encounter against Crystal Palace next Saturday.
Newcastle United will be hopeful that their first-team squad will be significantly stronger after the international break for their next Premier League match. Eddie Howe’s team was without numerous key players for their challenging run of games before the international break, yet they went unbeaten in seven games and recorded some stunning successes.

However, some of those players could return when the season resumes on November 21 against Crystal Palace. United will require them as they prepare for games against Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United, and Arsenal.

“The injury list doesn’t look great, but apart from Harvey Barnes, there isn’t anything long term there,” Howe stated ahead of the 2-2 draw with West Ham. Perhaps some short-term discomfort for us.”


Here’s a roundup of the most recent Newcastle United injury news.

Callum Wilson

The Newcastle United No 9 made a return to action from the bench in the 2-2 draw with West Ham, coming in for the closing stages after missing several games with a hamstring issue. The international break has come at an ideal time with Wilson able to build his fitness with United after his injury meant he was not included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.


The Brazilian came back from injury for the Carabao Cup win over Manchester City and then was on the the bench for the Premier League game with Burnley. But he lasted just four minutes before succumbing to a hamstring problem. However, it’s not thought to be too serious, and he was close to a return against West Ham.

He missed out on that game and the Brazil squad for the international break and so has plenty of time to recover ahead of Crystal Palace

Sven Botman

The Dutch defender has been missing since the win over Sheffield United and won’t be back until after the international break. Howe revealed on Friday that Harvey Barnes was the only ‘long-term’ concern so Botman could return for the game with Crystal Palace later this month.

Jamaal Lascelles has performed admirably in the side in Botman’s absence.


Harvey Barnes

We’re unlikely to see the former Leicester City winger until the new year after he picked up a toe injury against Sheffield United. It was a big blow for Barnes who looked set to play a key role in the hectic fixture list.

Joe Willock

We’re yet to see the former Arsenal midfielder in action for Newcastle this season after he had a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury. He was expected to be back in September after missing pre-season, but Willock is still to return to full training.

Howe said: “Unfortunately, Joe has had a bit of a setback. It’s an Achilles injury not related to his hamstring problem. So, I think he will be missing for around (another) six weeks. We are missing him in terms of his energy.”
