Newcastle injuries & return dates as £68m trio ruled out of next four games & Joelinton training boost

Newcastle United have been hit by a fresh injury blow this week with Harvey Barnes ruled out for ‘months’ – here is the club’s current injury list.

Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe also said a few of his players were fitness concerns ahead of Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup match against Manchester City (8pm kick-off) but would not elaborate on who they were.

Alexander Isak has been playing through a knee issue in recent weeks but continues to be selected.

Wednesday’s third-round cup tie will be Newcastle’s fourth match in the space of 11 days.

Here is the club’s current injury list…

Joelinton (knee) – out
Joelinton will be hoping to be back in contention before the international break as he recovers from a knee injury. He has been spotted back at the training ground ahead of the Manchester City game.

Expected return: Paris Saint-Germain (H) – 04/10

Harvey Barnes (foot) – out
Harvey Barnes is facing months on the sidelines with a foot injury following the results of a scan on Monday. The 25-year-old may require surgery as the club awaits further guidance from a specialist.

Expected return: TBC (November 2023-January 2024).

Expected return: Crystal Palace (H) – 21/10
