Callum Wilson, Alexander Isak, Jacob Murphy: Newcastle United injury list & return dates - £32m blow photos

Newcastle United injuries: Callum Wilson, Alexander Isak and Joe Willock are all looking to bounce back from injury blows.

Newcastle United suffered two fresh injury blows on Saturday evening at Nottingham Forest.

Whilst Anthony Gordon's ankle injury was not as bad as first feared and the winger was able to start and play 90 minutes in the 3-2 win at the City Ground, The Magpies saw Jacob Murphy pull up in the warm-up with a tight calf. And in the closing stages of the match, Callum Wilson struggled with his arm.

"Slight concern for us after the game," Eddie Howe said. "His shoulder is fine but there looks to be a problem with one of the muscles in his arm. We’re hopeful it’s not serious but at this moment we don’t know.

"Jacob Murphy was unusable for us today. He didn’t feel great in the warm-up. So we’re still getting challenges left, right and centre but we’re, at this moment in time, managing to come through those."

Newcastle also have the likes of Alexander Isak pushing to return from a groin issue while Joe Willock and Elliot Anderson continue their recovery after lengthy absences. The midfield duo are understood to be closing in on returns but Howe issued a warning that, in Willock's case: "There is no certainty until he’s back, that he will be back."  

Willock has been out for the majority of the season with an Achilles injury. Despite returning briefly, the 24-year-old suffered a set-back which has since kept him out for another three months. Elliot Anderson is facing at least four months on the sidelines in total having sustained a stress fracture in his back in October.
