Breaking News: What Newcastle Are Going To Be Without Him For a Whole Summer Injury SetBack

When Newcastle United striker  Alexander  Isak walked off the field last night, it spoiled the atmosphere.

The fact that Isak was taken off so early in the game against Borussia Dortmund last night dramatically damaged the atmosphere inside St. James’ Park, is the Magpies went on to lose their first Champions League match by a tight 1-0 score.

The striker had just recently returned from a groin ailment that had forced him to withdraw from international action with Sweden earlier in the month.


Newcastle will be without Isak for some time.

Newcastle will be without Isak for some time.

Eddie Howe stated after yesterday night’s game that his ailment appears to be a repeat of that condition, and now Craig Hope has supplied an update on X that no one wanted to see.

“Understand Alexander Isak is unlikely to return before the next international break after sustaining a groin injury against Dortmund.” This might rule him out of the next five matches.




The problem is not regarded to be serious, but it is still a blow to be down to one striker for certain crucial games.” Newcastle’s reluctance to add to their attacking alternatives in the summer will truly hurt this season if Isak continues to pick up knocks.


No disrespect to Callum Wilson, but Eddie Howe has handled him excellently since he arrived, and as a result, he’s had a nice run without injury, but now he’ll be expected to play the next five games, which will come thick and fast. It’s a source of concern.

Newcastle has choices up front, but they aren’t really good.
Things were looking better after Joe Willock returned to full training and made an appearance last night, but now we’ve lost Isak and Jacob Murphy, with Saturday’s hero allegedly dislocating his shoulder and expected to be out for a long time.


Anthony Gordon was a substitute striker for England U21s during their victorious European Championship campaign this summer, earning him the Player of the Tournament title. Joelinton is also no stranger to playing up front, so there are choices if Wilson has to rest, but they aren’t ideal.

It’s yet another setback for Newcastle, who have been plagued by injuries this season.
