Newcastle United dealt blow ahead of Tottenham Hotspur as injury list increases to 12

Newcastle United’s injury list now stands at TWELVE after a fresh blow against Fulham.

Newcastle United have been dealt a fresh injury blow after Joe Willock limped out of their Premier League clash at Fulham.

Eddie Howe already went into the encounter with 11 injured players, as well as being unable to call upon suspended Sandro Tonali.

And Willock, who went down five minutes before the break, has given Howe a fresh headache, not only for the clash with Fulham, but also with Tottenham Hotspur just around the corner.

The Magpies have seven games remaining in their Premier League season after the Craven Cottage encounter.

Willock dropped to the floor after winning a challenge to set up a first-half Newcastle attack. The former Arsenal midfielder was replaced by Elliot Anderson off the United bench.

Below is a full injury list, excluding the freshest addition, Willock.
