Journalist Dean Jones thinks Alexander Isak could make his first start for Newcastle United this week.
A tricky fixture away against Liverpool is up next in the Premier League for the Magpies as they look to continue their unbeaten start to the new season.
Much of the focus, no doubt, will be on new club-record £63m signing Isak – who just arrived from Real Sociedad and is yet to feature for Newcastle.
While speaking about the player on the Chasing Green Arrows YouTube channel, Jones claimed that Isak is fit and should be in contention to play from the off.
He said: “He’s fit, so I presume he’ll play a part. I mean, it would be a big place to throw him into the frame at Anfield.
“But maybe he’ll thrive on that, maybe that’s what he wants. Got an extra day [of training], so yeah, there’s more than a possibility that he would start that game.”
