“shocking as it seems” – Top key Newcastle United midfielder will be absent for six(6) weeks , according to scan results, while a £32 million pair is expected to return to Aston Villa

Elliot Anderson, a 21-year-old midfielder for Newcastle United, is expected to remain out of action for around six more weeks, bringing his total time away from the field to five months.

In October, Anderson was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his back, and he has not been seen playing since the 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace, which occurred almost four months ago.

In an interview with The Gazette at the time, Magpies head coach Eddie Howe stated, “The next day [after Crystal Palace], he woke up with a sore back and it didn’t really go away so he’s had scans and tests and it looks like eight weeks.”

As a result of the player receiving multiple scans on his back, Anderson has been recovering from his injury for a period of time that is substantially longer than eight weeks. Even though the findings of his most recent scan were positive, he has not yet returned to full training with the first squad. According to sources from Mail Sport, the kid will still require “around six weeks” before he can be considered for a return to the competition.

In light of the fact that Anderson will be out of action until March and Joelinton will be undergoing thigh surgery that will bring an early end to his season, Howe will be trying to strengthen his team in every manner that is feasible over the next several weeks. The good news is that a number of players are getting close to returning to action.

Jacob Murphy is currently participating in training and is in a position to return for Newcastle’s FA Cup fourth round encounter against Fulham, which is scheduled to take place on the following Saturday at 7 o’clock. During the month of November, the winger underwent surgery to correct a dislocated shoulder.

For the encounter against Aston Villa on January 30, Howe anticipates that both Murphy and striker Callum Wilson will be returning from a calf injury. Meanwhile, Joe Willock and Harvey Barnes are believed to be within a matter of weeks after being out for an extended period of time to recover from their injuries.

1. The sickness known as Tino Livramento
As a result of his sickness, Livramento was unable to play against Manchester City; however, it is anticipated that he will be back in contention for Newcastle’s match against Fulham. Return that is anticipated: 27/01 Fulham (A) – Fulham

Shoulder for Jacob Murphy, number two
After only ten days since he dislocated his shoulder against Borussia Dortmund, Jacob Murphy made a surprising comeback from his injury against Arsenal. Following his introduction to the game at St. James’ Park, the winger sustained yet another shoulder injury, which necessitated surgical intervention. In the aftermath of the operation, the 28-year-old was deemed ineligible for a period of nine weeks, which has already run its course. The winger has resumed light training, according to Howe, who verified the news. Return that is anticipated: 27/01 Fulham (A) – Fulham

(3) Callum Wilson, who is a calf
There has been a calf injury sustained by Callum Wilson. The problem is not considered to be critical, and it is anticipated that it will be resolved before the month of January is up. Aston Villa is the anticipated date of return.

(4) Joe Willock, who played Achilles
Because of a recurrence of an Achilles ailment, Willock was unable to participate in the victory over Chelsea in November. Howe referred to the setback as a “massive blow,” as he has been ruled out of competition for more than a month after undergoing injections.
