Longstaff Ruled Out For Tomorrow While Almiron Should Be Fine

Steve Bruce has just revealed that Sean Longstaff will be out for tomorrow’s clash at Liverpool with an ankle injury.

While it does not appear to be too serious, this is another key player added to the growing injury list. Jonjo Shelvey will likely get the nod in the midfield. However, this game really does not suit him.

We think that there could be a chance that Matty Longstaff could make his Premier League debut for Newcastle. He is better defensively than Jonjo, and let’s face it, Newcastle are going to be under assault for most of this game.

It does appear like Miguel Almiron will be fit for the game. Miguel returned from international duty yesterday, and Steve says it looks like he has recovered well.

We would expect Almiron to get the start tomorrow with such limited options in attack. Though we wouldn’t mind it if Bruce found a way to get Yoshinori Muto into the lineup as well.
