Callum Wilson & Kieran Trippier update as four Newcastle United players out of Crystal Palace

Newcastle United injury latest ahead of the third round Carabao Cup clash against Crystal Palace.

Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe has delivered a positive update on Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier. There was some concern surrounding both players following Sunday’s 4-1 win at Southampton.

Wilson, after assisting Miguel Almiron’s opener at St Mary’s, did not emerge for the second half after suffering from illness. Trippier, meanwhie, took a knock to his hamstring before eventually being withdrawn with 10 minutes remaining.

“Callum is OK,” the Magpies head coach said. “He’s been feeling an ilness for a few days. He’s a little bit rundown. We’ll see how he is again today.”

On Trippier, Howe added: “No problems with Kieran. It always looks probably more than it is when a physio comes on the pitch but he came out second half and was fine. As I said, it was my decision to take him off.”

Howe is expected to name changes to his starting XI for the visit of Crystal Palace in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. The cup match is a brief break from Premier League action ahead of facing Chelsea on Saturday. United sit third in the table having collected 27 points from their opening 14 games.

“The league form is, of course, so important to us as well but we want to do well in the cups.” Howe said. “Every competition we enter we want to try and give the best representation of ourselves. I said very early days in here that my dream is to try and win something at Newcastle and that hasn’t changed.”
