Newcastle dealt fresh triple blow as injury crisis gets worse, star out for 6 weeks

Newcastle’s injury crisis appears to have worsened significantly, according to an alarming ‘exclusive’ from The Telegraph. Luke Edwards reports that Callum Wilson is facing an absence of ‘at least six weeks’ due to a hamstring problem, while there are concerns about Sven Botman potentially requiring surgery for his persistent knee issue.

Botman’s potential surgery could sideline him until February, with his condition showing no signs of improvement lately, raising the likelihood of needing the procedure.

Adding to the concerns is Sean Longstaff, who is grappling with an inflamed ankle and might not be fit for the upcoming clash against Chelsea, leaving the team critically short-handed across all positions.

Amidst this bleak scenario, there is a glimmer of hope as Miguel Almiron’s hamstring injury is deemed minor, giving him an outside chance of featuring in the next match despite pulling out of international duties. However, Harvey Barnes, though making good recovery progress from a foot injury, is unlikely to return to action for another month.

The absence of key players like Burn, Targett, Tonali, Anderson, and Murphy due to long-term injuries compounds the team’s worries, making the potential loss of Wilson and Botman until the New Year a devastating blow.
