Anthony Gordon, Nick Pope & Joelinton: Newcastle United injury list & expected return dates

Anthony Gordon, Nick Pope & Joelinton: Newcastle United injury list & expected return dates.

Newcastle United head into this evening's FA Cup quarter-final clash away to Manchester City with several players ruled out.

But one player who is expected to make the squad is Anthony Gordon. The winger withdrew with a knee issue in Monday's 3-2 defeat at Chelsea but is believed to have avoided a serious injury.

Gordon received his maiden England call-up on Thursday for friendlies against Brazil and Belgium before returning to training with his Magpies' teammates on Friday.

Speaking about Gordon's injury, Magpies' boss Eddie Howe said: "It was a strange one because initially when you see a player come off like that you fear it's a serious injury.

"He partly trained yesterday, we didn't do a great deal but he joined in and seemed okay. I don't think he did anything serious which is great news for us.

"We train again [Friday] so we'll do a full session and make a judgement after that."

Meanwhile, United are without the likes of Harvey Barnes and Kieran Trippier, while Callum Wilson, Joelinton and Nick Pope are longer-term absentees.

Newcastle head to the Etihad having not won there in 10 years. A victory will see them advance into the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since the early 2000s.

Here's Newcastle United's absentee list in full and when each player is expected to return:
