Newcastle United hit by triple injury blow as problems mount up for Magpies

Eddie Howe will gather his thoughts before analyzing a slew of injuries sustained before and during the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund.

Newcastle United could be without three players for their crucial match against Wolves on Saturday night, with major doubts about Jacob Murphy and Elliot Anderson’s availability.

Murphy dislocated his shoulder just five minutes after entering the game against Germany, and just days after a 10/10 performance against Crystal Palace. Anderson had a back ailment and will be out for several weeks.

On a night when Alexander Isak suffered a recurrence of a groin injury, the challenges for Howe and his backroom staff continue to pile.

After losing 1-0 to Dortmund, the impending ban for Sandro Tonali is set to come through in the coming days.

“As it stands, we have a small squad. That was certainly the most disappointing aspect of the evening.

“It appears to be a recurrence of his [Isak’s] groin problem, which is a major setback.” Jacob appears to be in considerable pain, possibly from a shoulder dislocation.”

Anderson, who suffered a back injury before the game, is also in peril. He said: “It’s a back injury and he will be out for a few weeks.”

“We need to sit down and analyze the game,” Howe remarked after the loss to Dortmund. When

you play a team so rapidly, we have to figure out how to adjust and see if we can go there and win. We didn’t deserve to lose today, in my opinion.”
