Fabian Schar, Alexander Isak & Joelinton: Newcastle United return dates gallery

Newcastle United injury latest ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash at Southampton.

Newcastle United have been feeling the effects of a busy period in their Premier League campaign - even if results suggest otherwise.

Eddie Howe’s side played three games in seven days and picked up seven points from a possible nine before enjoying a six-day break ahead of beating Aston Villa 4-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Several United players have been carrying knocks however, so the eight-day break between the Villa game and Southampton on Sunday is welcomed by Howe & Co.

“There will be a few players that benefit from that break, to be honest,” Howe said. “We’ll manage them early part of this week but it’s all about driving them up to make sure when the game comes they are really physically.”

Here, NewcastleWorld takes a look at Newcastle’s injury list and look at when each player could return to action:
