After eleven attempts, Newcastle United finally managed to secure their first three-points of the season with a hard-fought win over visitors Watford on Saturday.
However, the victory came at a cost, after the Tynesiders lost three players to injury, all within six minutes either side of half-time. "There are a couple of problems. Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto have muscular problems, so we will have to see what is going on," mused manager Rafa Benitez post-match. "Muto was his calf. But it’s still too early to know what he has. Jamaal Lascelles had a little problem with his shoulder in training a couple of days ago." While initial reports suggest the United skipper will be okay to face Bournemouth this weekend, Muto and Shelvey are waiting on the results of their scan, but the pair are rated as major doubts. After impressing from the bench, and setting up the winner for Ayoze Perez, Ki Sung-Yeung will be hoping to make his first Premier League start since September [GW4]. Tue, Nov 6, 2018 06:06:00 PM
