Newcastle United fresh injury blow leaves five players ruled out of Arsenal trip - photos

Here is Newcastle United’s current injury list and estimated return dates heading into the Premier League match against Arsenal

Newcastle United have been nursing several injury issues for the majority of the season with the likes of Emil Krafth ruled out for the majority of the campaign so far. Record signing Alexander Isak, midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and defender Paul Dummett have also had extended spells on the sidelines.

But heading into 2023, head coach Eddie Howe is hopeful of welcoming back some players sooner rather than later. The Magpies will be looking to build on a fantastic start to the Premier League season which has left them sitting third in the table heading into the New Year.

Still, Newcastle have been hit with some fresh injury blows since returning to league action following the World Cup. Matt Targett has now been ruled out for an indeterminate period while Shelvey picked up another injury as he continues to chase a contract extension.
