Newcastle confirm midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will undergo further tests after suffering an injury during the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth on Saturday.
The 26-year-old was heavily criticised for failing to track runners as the home side scored twice in the last 10 minutes to grab an unlikely point. Shelvey was spotted by cameras bent over – during the build up to both goals - holding his leg, but a post-match assessment identified a knee problem which will require a scan to determine the extent of the issue. The Liverpool old boy now faces a race against time to feature at Anfield on Saturday. If Shelvey does miss out, then Rafa Benitez could turn to Mikel Merino who has struggled to recapture his early season form after battling to overcome a niggling back problem. United are also sweating on the fitness of Dwight Gayle after he complained of a tight hamstring on the south coast. Meanwhile, Islam Slimani is still 10-14 days away from being considered having suffered a setback in training. Feb 27 - 4:31 PM
