Journalist Charlie Bennett has been left gutted after hearing the news that Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak has picked up an injury.
Have you been impressed by Alexander Isak so far at NUFC?
TIF thoughts on Alexander Isak and Newcastle…
Having signed Isak for a club-record £63m fee from Real Sociedad – and seeing him score two goals in three games since – the striker is a key player for the club so any major injury would be a big blow for the club.
Indeed, alternative option Callum Wilson is also currently out suffering from his own fitness issue. On top of that, Allan Saint-Maximin, Elliot Anderson, Jonjo Shelvey, Karl Darlow, and Emil Krafth are also all out with injuries – hence the ‘cursed’ claim made by Bennett.
After a slow start to the season – where they have won just one Premier League game – Newcastle need all the help they can get right now. And so this concerning update is the last thing fans would have wanted to hear.
