Steve Bruce has dropped a very worrying piece of early team news as Newcastle United play Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match at St. James’ Park against the North London club, the former Aston Villa and Sunderland boss claimed: “I wouldn’t have thought Callum will be available.”
Newcastle need Wilson
The North East club will need Wilson to be back onto the pitch as soon as possible in order to give them the best possible chance of avoiding being relegated from the top flight down to the EFL Championship.
Was Wilson a good signing by Newcastle United?
The former AFC Bournemouth ace has emerged as their main man so far in the 2020/21 term, as he has scored more goals and made more assists than any other player at the Tyneside club in the league, with 10 and five respectively (Whoscored).
He offers more than just his goals and assists as well, as he is able to stretch defenders with his pace and movement and thus allow other players like Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron to thrive in attacking areas.
Nonetheless, the Magpies may have to try and find a way of beating Spurs without their talisman, which will not be an easy task by any stretch of the imagination.
