Newcastle injury woes
As well as Callum Wilson missing out till around Christmas, Newcastle have a plethora of other top talent set to miss out vs Chelsea.
It is said that centre-back Sven Botman’s return may be delayed to next year, with the Magpies defender weighing up whether to have surgery to deal with a knee problem.
In total, Newcastle have a staggering 11 players in the treatment room, not to mention Sandro Tonali’s 10-month suspension for gambling breaches and Lewis Hall not being able to play the Magpies’ next game as it is against his parent club, Chelsea.
It was thought that some of the absentees would be back for the clash at home to the Blues on 25th November, but The Telegraph claim that only Alexander Isak will be fit in time for that.
