Confirmed Newcastle United starting XI v Luton Town: £40m blow as Anthony Gordon decision made



Newcastle United faces Luton Town away in their Premier League match this afternoon (kick-off 3pm) with several injury concerns.


Emil Krafth and Anthony Gordon were subjected to controversial challenges by Levi Colwill and Mosies Caicedo, respectively, during the Carabao Cup quarterfinal loss to Chelsea on midweek.


Due to a gash on his shin, Krafth withdrew at halftime, whereas Gordon was substituted shortly into the second half.”According to the scan, the area around the muscle appeared to be more fatigued rather than an injury.” The responsibility for that lies with the medical team.”


Our prediction for the lineup of Newcastle United is as follows:”We shall assess their condition this morning,” said Eddie Howe, head coach of the Magpies, on Friday. Anthony was in considerable discomfort; upon reviewing the challenge, I concluded that it was dreadful for him. Extremely dissatisfied with the contact. He’s in pain, but we’ll monitor his condition today; with any luck, he’ll recover swiftly.


“Emil sustained a nasty, quite deep cut on the side of his shin.” “Seven stitches were required, so he is also quite sore.”


In the first half of Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Fulham, United suffered injuries to Fabian Schar (glute) and Joelinton (hamstring), both of which were sidelined prior to the 4-2 penalty shootout loss at Stamford Bridge.The two individuals were scanned on Monday and were not present in West London. According to Howe, their injuries are not life-threatening, and a determination regarding their participation against Luton is pending.


Howe remarked, “The scans painted a comparable picture; neither was overly somber.” “Although Joe is marginally superior to Fabby, we will still decide between the two players prior to this match.”

Two of Alexander Isak’s most recent contests have been omitted due to recurrent groin pain. Kenilworth Road receives a ’50/50′ rating regarding the Swede.


“At this moment, 50/50,” Howe stated. “Having missed the previous two games, he was plainly experiencing pain in his groin.1. Martin Dubravka, GK

In place of Nick Pope, the Slovak is vying for a second consecutive Premier League clean sheet.2. Kieran Trippier (in place of Emil Krafth) at running back

Midweek at Stamford Bridge, Trippier endured a dreadful evening as he enters a challenging phase of his Newcastle career. However, the England player does not conceal his position, and he maintains Howe’s complete backing.4. Sven Botman, CB

Botman appeared in the first half against Chelsea and made his return after a three-month absence injury-free. The Dutchman is not only a formidable defender, but his pass-finding ability is also a crucial quality.
