Already without top goalscorer Callum Wilson after he picked up a serious calf injury in late December, the Magpies were dealt another significant blow last week.
Kieran Trippier, a £12million January signing from Atletico Madrid, broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot on just his fourth Premier League appearance for the club.
The England right-back had made an incredible impact following his arrival – scoring two free-kicks in wins against Everton and Aston Villa, while his leadership skills have also gone a very long way.

Star winger Allan Saint-Maximin was among the players to miss Saturday’s draw at West Ham United, though is expected to return along with Javier Manquillo and Matt Ritchie sooner rather than later.
