Newcastle United star ruled out for six weeks as £53m duo unavailable v Fulham & Tottenham Hotspur

Newcastle United were without 12 senior players for the 1-1 draw against Everton at St James' Park.

Newcastle United will remain without several key players for Saturday's Premier League trip to Fulham (kick-off 3pm).

Twelve first-team players missed the 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Tuesday, a game where Alexander Isak opened the scoring early on only to be denied three points by Dominic Calvert-Lewin's 88th minute penalty.

While Anthony Gordon will return from his one-match suspension this weekend, the injury situation remains bleak.

Having already confirmed that Jamaal Lascelles will be sidelined for six to nine months with an ACL injury, United boss Eddie Howe has revealed a timescale for Tino Livramento and Miguel Almiron.

Both players were forced off in the second-half against West Ham United last Saturday and are set to be out for a month, meaning they won't return until the final three fixture against Burnley, Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.

Howe said: "Jamaal’s is a big injury. The ACL is hugely frustrating for him and us so he’ll be out long-term. The others we don’t think are serious but when you have a glut of games like we have it’s going to hurt us short-term.

"Miggy, we think will be out for around a month with a knee injury, Tino the same with an ankle injury."

With Livramento and Kieran Trippier absent against the Everton, Emil Krafth started at right-back and in turn made his first Premier League start in almost two years.

And the Sweden international will likely retain his spot at Craven Cottage with Trippier already ruled out. The 33-year-old's calf injury, sustained in the 3-0 win over Wolves on March 2, has turned into a six week layoff, although that will increase if he doesn't return for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on April 13.

"Kieran’s not ready to play yet so he won’t be back for the Fulham game," Howe added.
