Newcastle United: Magpies gifted Elliot Anderson injury boost -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have been gifted an injury boost ahead of their next Premier League game away to Fulham after the international break.

The Lowdown: Saint-Maximin update

Speaking to the media after their 1-1 draw at home to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, Eddie Howe revealed (via The Chronicle) that Allan Saint-Maximin has suffered a ‘minor setback’ in his recovery from a hamstring injury, which is why he did not feature this weekend.

The former Cherries manager added that it is ‘unclear’ when the 25-year-old will return, despite the St James’ Park outfit now breaking off for the internationals.

The Latest: Anderson ‘will be fit’ v Fulham

Howe also gave an update on Elliot Anderson, who was also absent against Bournemouth, revealing (via The Chronicle) that he too had a ‘minor’ niggle.

However, the Newcastle manager said of the 19-year-old that ‘he’ll be fit’ for their next match against Fulham in October.

The Verdict: Boost for Newcastle

While there are now doubts over whether Saint-Maximin will be fit for the trip to Craven Cottage, it will certainly be a boost for Newcastle to have Anderson back.

The 19-year-old has made four senior appearances already this season, as he looks to make his breakthrough into the first team after a loan spell at Bristol Rovers last term.

Should Newcastle keep Anderson?





Nonetheless, with all of the other injuries in the Magpies’ squad, they need all of the bodies that they can get, especially with the risk of injury and fatigue after the upcoming international fixtures.
