Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie has now revealed some promising injury news for Newcastle United involving Jonjo Shelvey.

The Lowdown: Howe comments

Speaking after the St. James’ Park outfit’s 1-0 win over Atalanta in a pre-season friendly on Friday night, Eddie Howe shared (via The Chronicle) that Shelvey will not be involved against Athletic Bilbao this afternoon.

He added that the North East club are waiting for the results and a couple of opinions on some scans, to see what the extent of nerve damage that the player has done to his hamstring.

The Latest: Downie update

Taking to Twitter, Downie has now revealed that Shelvey’s hamstring injury is ‘not too serious’, although it is likely to keep him out of action for ‘around two weeks’:

“Hearing Jonjo Shelvey’s hamstring injury is not too serious; likely to keep him out for around two weeks though.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Promising

It is certainly promising to hear that the extent of Shelvey’s injury is not as serious as perhaps first feared.

Should Newcastle start Shelvey?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The central midfielder was a key player under Howe last season, playing in almost every game he was available for, scoring two goals and managing one assist (Transfermarkt).

He also captained the team towards the back end of the campaign, showing his leadership qualities both on the pitch and in the dressing room, and will no doubt be an important player again this term as the Magpies look to really kick-start their long-term project.
