‘Brilliant’ 25-year-old Newcastle player could miss Crystal Palace clash due to illness

NUFC.news has received information indicating that a vital midfielder for Newcastle United has been dealing with an illness this week and might not be available for the upcoming match. While we don’t profess to be internet insiders, we believe it’s our duty to share credible information when we come across it.

Nevertheless, we want to make it clear that we are not trying to be perceived as “in the know” individuals, so it’s ultimately your choice on how to use this information.

According to a source close to the talented Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff, the 25-year-old has been suffering from tonsillitis this week, which could result in his absence from the Crystal Palace game. Eddie Howe did not mention Longstaff in his morning press conference. Additionally, the club has not released their usual training photos for this week, making it impossible for us to confirm his presence in the preparations.

If this information proves accurate, it will be another setback for Eddie Howe, who has had a string of challenges in fielding his preferred starting lineup. Just as he welcomed back Joelinton, he now faces the potential loss of Sean Longstaff.

Sandro Tonali’s availability is also uncertain, with Howe having to decide whether he is mentally prepared to play tomorrow. Fortunately, he can turn to Elliot Anderson if needed, so while losing Longstaff is disappointing, Howe still has alternatives.

Last season, there was a noticeable difference in the team’s performance when Longstaff was on the field compared to when he was absent, so his unavailability is always a cause for concern.

If you participate in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) and have Longstaff in your team, it might be wise to consider benching him this weekend.
