Newcastle United provide an injury report on Joe Willock and Sean Longstaff ahead of their match against Manchester United.



Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe believes Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock’s injuries aren’t serious, but he can’t give a timetable for their comeback.


The midfield duo haven’t played since a 2-0 loss to AFC Bournemouth before the international break, and as a result have missed back-to-back meetings against Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.


Both players are expected to miss Saturday’s match against Manchester United at St James’ Park.

Sean and Joe aren’t long-term injuries,” said Howe. “We’re hopeful we can get them back. The problem is, two or three weeks at this stage seems a like a lifetime because of the amount of games. At any other stage of the season, it wouldn’t have been too bad.

Very difficult to give you a definitive time on both players but they’re not too bad.”
