Blow for Benitez as Newcastle United forward suffers injury and faces short spell out

Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern are extremely worried about injuries, as an injury to one of their star players could cause all sorts of problems. 

The Magpies are hoping they can improve on their last victory against Southampton, as momentum will be key from here on in until the end of the season. Although, many of our local northerners received some negative news prior to today’s match against Huddersfield Town, as according to journalist Craig Hope’s personal Twitter account, Joselu will be out for at least one week with an ankle injury.

The Spaniard has certainly had a season to forget as he continues to be heavily criticised for his poor performances, with many of our local residents unmoved by the injury news involving the 28-year-old.

Indeed, Joselu has dropped to the bench in recent times as Dwight Gayle has taken his place at the pinnacle of the attack, with Islam Slimani’s return to fitness adding to the striker’s woes.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Newcastle United won’t be too pleased to hear news of another injury at a key time in their season, but the striker’s absence won’t trouble many supporters as he’s offered very little thus far. Although, another injury to a striker could potentially ruin the Magpies’ season, as there seems to be an injury crisis causing havoc at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United fans… Thoughts on the news? Let us know down below!!!
