NUFC star suffers “freak injury” and will miss tomorrow’s game vs Liverpool

Steve Bruce has confirmed that Sean Longstaff will miss tomorrow’s game at Liverpool after suffering an injury in training yesterday.

The NUFC head coach has described it as a ‘freak injury’, claiming a ball ‘hit him and rocked his ankle’, however he does not believe it’s ‘too serious’.

Here’s what the 58-year-old has had to say on the injury during his pre-match press conference in the last few moments:

“Unfortunately, Sean Longstaff turned his ankle over yesterday in training – one of those freak injuries where a ball hit him and rocked his ankle.

“We don’t think it’s too serious but he’s certainly not available for Saturday.”

“We won’t know how severe it is for a couple of days.”

A disappointing blow ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Anfield – the ground Sean made his Premier League debut at last season.

As a result, you’d expect Jonjo Shelvey to come into the midfield, however the likes of Ki Sung-yeung and Matty Longstaff will also be midfield options for Bruce.

Considering he’s not long returned from a season-ending knee injury, let’s hope (and pray!) this one doesn’t keep him out for long.
