3 NUFC stars now likely to miss Leicester game – 2 new ‘injuries’ and 1 shattered..

It seems there could be more bad news to emerge from yesterday’s disappointing defeat to Everton, as Steve Bruce has indicated that both Fabian Schar and Joelinton came off the pitch with hamstring and calf injuries respectively.

It’s too early to tell if either of them will be available for Leicester’s visit on New Year’s Day but Bruce has indicated that the pair, along with Florian Lejeune (who came off looking shattered yesterday) will be touch and go for next week’s game.

While there we be unilateral agreement among Newcastle fans that Schar is a miss, Joelinton’s absence will surely split opinion.

The abuse he’s received on social media is surprising and saddening, as in my humble opinion he had an excellent first half at both Old Trafford and yesterday. He really looks so much more comfortable and effective in his natural position of wide of the striker.

As for Lejeune, it really was asking a lot for him to play twice in 48 hours after EIGHT months out with a serious knee injury.

As usual, it was a disappointing and fruitless Christmas for us points wise. Boxing Day was a promising start and an opportunity wasted due to nothing else but stupid individual errors by other wise solid players.

Yesterday’s performance was decent in places, but while we’ve certainly played worse and lost this season, and the referee got a couple of big calls wrong, it looked ragged and disjointed at times and Ancelotti showed his quality by changing the game with the introduction of Delph and taking control of the midfield.

We’ll need to improve a lot for Leicester but in fairness to Bruce and the players, there’s usually a reaction to bad results.
