Their latest victory saw Eddie Howe’s side secure a 3-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.
Two goals from Joelinton and one from Bruno Guimaraes sealed the three points for Newcastle and put another nail in the coffin for Norwich and their hopes of avoiding relegation.
However, the Toon’s next match will undoubtedly be a much tougher test for them as they are set to take on title-chasing Liverpool at St. James’ Park this weekend.
Looking ahead to this showdown, it seems as though an early team news clue has emerged regarding which players may or may not be involved in the match for the Magpies.
When asked whether or not any of Newcastle’s currently injured duo of Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier or Ryan Fraser will be fit enough to feature against Jurgen Klopp’s side, Howe had this to say on the matter.
He said: “Not sure as we speak. I’d probably say no off the top of my head, but we’ll wait and see.”
With the uncertainty over when the three players will be able to make a recovery, this will surely have the Toon manager fuming, especially with such a tough game coming up.
Taking into account how the trio have scored a combined total of ten goals in the Premier League this season, it’s undeniable that the Magpies would be a deadlier side if they had them in the team.
Trippier is currently being listed as Newcastle’s highest-rated player in terms of his overall performances according to WhoScored with a rating of 7.87/10 too so he’d be a great option for Howe to have back available in his side.
Despite the solid run of form they’ve been on in recent weeks, the Tyneside club will need all the help they can get if they want to beat Liverpool.
With Jurgen Klopp’s men bagging more goals scored and registering more clean sheets than any other side in the top flight, the Magpies will need to be at the top of their game if they want to continue their winning run of form.
Moving forward, if the injured trio aren’t able to feature in this weekend’s game, everyone connected to the club will undoubtedly be hoping that they can step foot on the pitch before the season draws to a close.
