Howe told Sky Sports: "Callum’s just got a very minor hamstring complaint. We hope to get him back for the next one.”

On 23-year-old Isak, Howe added: "He’s been training really, really well. He’s been electric with some of the things he’s done in training. He's consistently improved since coming back from his injury. Delighted to have a player of his calibre with this opportunity.”
