Newcastle United: Steve Bruce reveals Ryan Fraser ‘blow’

Newcastle United: Steve Bruce reveals Ryan Fraser ‘blow’ - Newcastle United

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce revealed that the club may be without Ryan Fraser for their Premier League fixture on Tuesday.

So far this season, Fraser has struggled for regular Premier League game time for Newcastle, predominantly down due to a number of injuries, with the Scot starting just five games in the league.

And, speaking in his pre-match press conference, Bruce claimed that the £10.8 million-rated 26-year-old could once again be unavailable for selection for Newcastle’s clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening, as the winger is ill.

He said: “The concern I’ve got at the moment is, unfortunately, Ryan Fraser. He’s been sick all weekend and couldn’t make training yesterday. Thankfully, we don’t think it’s related to [the pandemic], but, obviously, it’s a blow for us because unfortunately he’s been stop-start since the start of the season.”

Transfer Tavern Take

Fraser’s poor health certainly is a blow for Newcastle, as the winger put in his second-best performance of the season against Everton last week, earning a WhoScored match rating of 6.69 for his contributions over the 67 minutes he spent on the pitch.

However, considering the 26-year-old’s return of no goals and one assist over his 11 Premier League appearances so far this season, it could be argued that Fraser has not been a very profitable signing for the Magpies thus far in his Newcastle career, and perhaps his absence will pave the way for Allan Saint-Maximin to finally return to the first XI.
