The Lowdown: Wilson return?
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match (via The Athletic), Eddie Howe revealed that Callum Wilson has been training all week, and looks ‘very good’ from a physical perspective.
The former Burnley and AFC Bournemouth manager then added that there is a ‘good chance’ that he will be involved against the reigning top-flight champions.
The Latest: Waugh buzzing
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist Waugh was left buzzing when he heard the news from Howe:
“Callum Wilson looks like he may be available for Sunday, which is a huge boost for NUFC.”
Should Newcastle start Wilson?
The Verdict: Relief
It will certainly comes as a relief to both Howe and the Toon Army that Wilson seems to have recovered well from an injury that has ruled him out since December.
He still remains their top scorer in the Premier League with six goals so far this season, and to have any chance of getting anything against a wounded City side, you would think that Wilson would have to feature.
Nonetheless, with safety all but secured in the top flight, this is about the Magpies now finishing off the term strongly ahead of what could be a very exciting summer transfer window at St. James’ Park.
