Newcastle Fears Joe Willock’s Absence in Final Matches, Multiple Players Sidelined by Injuries
Newcastle United is concerned about the unavailability of Joe Willock for their remaining two games after he suffered a hamstring injury during their match against Brighton.
Furthermore, Sean Longstaff is likely to be ruled out due to a foot injury, while Joelinton, Jacob Murphy, and Kieran Trippier are uncertain to participate due to various concerns.
Leicester City has taken swift action to expedite Kelechi Iheanacho’s recovery from a groin problem, hoping to include him in the squad for the clash at St James’ Park, according to manager Dean Smith’s remarks on Thursday.
Additionally, there is a possibility of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall returning from an ankle injury.
However, Smith expressed greater concern about the availability of Dewsbury-Hall, who received a pain-relieving injection prior to the match, compared to Iheanacho.
Caglar Soyuncu will remain absent due to a hamstring issue, joining Danny Ward, Jannik Vestergaard, and James Justin on the list of sidelined players.
Our Prediction: Newcastle United Secure a 2-0 Victory over Leicester City
Considering the immense effort Newcastle United put into their dominant display against Brighton, coupled with the growing list of fitness issues for manager Eddie Howe to address, it may be challenging for them to replicate the same level of relentless performance within a short span of five days.
Nevertheless, Leicester City is currently struggling with a severe lack of confidence and is not particularly formidable when playing away from home. Therefore, we anticipate a comfortable win for Newcastle, securing their position in the Champions League qualification spots and leaving Leicester on the brink of relegation to the Championship.
