When Eddie Howe provided the Anthony Gordon injury update the last time saying ‘it's not looking too good’. However, the latest update on the injury that Anthony Gordon suffered during the game against Chelsea will give Newcastle a huge morale booster before they take on last year’s treble winners Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final this Saturday.

Initial Anthony Gordon injury suggested that he could be out for 6 to 7 months. That could have been a telling blow for the Magpies as Gordon is one of their best players this season. So, losing him for that long would have been catastrophic for Eddie Howe and his quest to secure European football next season for Newcastle.

When the first report came out, no scans were done by then as the swelling in his knee would have taken time to subside. Therefore, the report had a chance of being inaccurate as the 23-year-old needed a scan to understand how long he would be out. The scan has been done and the report is somewhat position for the Newcastle star.

Newcastle players came back to Benton for the training session for the first time since the loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Subsequently, the scan result also came out and according to Chronicle; the report is not as bad as it seemed initially. So, the Newcastle forward could be back sooner rather than later.

This season is plagued with injuries for Newcastle as so many players are unavailable. So, the loss of the in-form Anthony Gordon will be huge for the Magpies ahead of the Manchester City game as he is expected to miss that game. However, he is not expected to be out for 6 to 7 months as reports came out initially after the Chelsea game and that will be a positive Anthony Gordon injury update for every Newcastle fan.
