It appears that Joelinton and Fabian Schar, who were both substituted in the first half of Newcastle’s 3-0 victory over Fulham, will be sidelined for a minimum of the following week.The iPaper reports that neither of the two will be included in the squad for Saturday’s travel to Kennilworth Road or tonight’s match at Stamford Bridge.


Newcastle receives both positive and negative injury updates.

Saturday commenced on a positive note for Newcastle, as it appeared that the club was beginning to regain some depth with the returns of Sven Botman and Dan Burn, who started his first game since early November.


However, Eddie Howe’s good fortune ran out as the day progressed, as two more Newcastle players were added to the injury list and will therefore be absent against Chelsea and Luton.Schar is injured the moment Callum Wilson returns to the lineup, and Alexander Isak is once again experiencing difficulty, giving Newcastle a situation that seems to be a weekly occurrence.


Despite the seemingly endless nature of the club’s crisis, Newcastle cannot afford to wallow in their predicament; those players who are still physically fit must muster whatever strength they can muster in order to endure this tumultuous period.Serious setback for matches against Luton and Chelsea.

Newcastle are seeking to regain momentum in the Premier League following a Champions League elimination and stringent defeats; therefore, the last thing they want to deal with are additional injuries.


This is especially true considering that their next two contests will take place away from home, where they have labored miserably this season, managing only two victories against Sheffield United and Manchester United.


Despite the fact that both Luton and Chelsea are struggling in their own unique ways and are in stark contrast to the opponents they have encountered recently, Newcastle cannot assume either team is unbeatable at this juncture of the season.
