The Newcastle injury news in recent months hasn't been kind to Eddie Howe, as there have been times where most players in his starting eleven have been on the sidelines. When you factor in the Sandro Tonali suspension, it doesn't look good. The only thing fans have had to hold onto is Bruno Guimaraes injury history looking good.
Well, this could soon become redundant as there are growing concerns the Brazilian has picked up an injury. And by concerns, I am talking about those stemming from reports by reputable sources, not just wannabes on social media.
Newcastle injury news: Bruno Guimaraes injury admission will concern Eddie Howe
According to The Athletic, Bruno Guimaraes made a worrying gesture when asked about his hamstring injury after the loss against Man City at the weekend. It was reported the Brazil midfielder gestured his hand from side to side, which is a concern for Eddie Howe.
Losing Bruno Guimaraes to injury will be the biggest blow for Eddie Howe. While the Magpies won't want to lose their star player at the best of times, the midfield concerns make this an even bigger blow, if the report is to be believed. I mentioned earlier that Sandro Tonali is suspended, but Joe Willock and Elliot Anderson are also sidelined, which means Lewis Miley is being used more often than Howe would like to keep the youngster safe.
In most games this season, Bruno Guimaraes has been the star player for Newcastle in the midfield and this was no different at the weekend as he picked up an emphatic assist for Alexander Isak's goal. However, it's a shame his performance was overshadowed by not just losing the match but also his injury concerns after the final whistle.
