Eddie Howe provides an update following Anthony Gordon’s limping off during Chelsea’s defeat due to injury

Dan Burn was also brought on at Stamford Bridge, and Harvey Barnes won’t likely be available for the Magpies’ match against Manchester City.

After was forced off the field against Chelsea due to injury, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe expressed his concerns.
The wild 3-2 loss at Stamford Bridge on Monday night was started by the former Everton winger, but he left the game early due to pain.

Gordon went down again after what appeared to be a harmless challenge from Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella ten minutes before halftime. Despite receiving treatment, he was unable to play again, and Jacob Murphy, who had originally started as a substitute for Miguel Almiron, came on to score a thunderous late goal that set up an exciting finish, took Gordon’s place.

Following the disappointing Premier League loss in west London, Newcastle boss Howe disclosed that Gordon had suffered a knee injury. The injury worsened throughout the first half, and Gordon’s prognosis did not appear good. They would be evaluating the injury’s severity in the following days.

“We worry that things are not looking well. It’s early days, but he’s in a lot of pain,” Howe stated at the press conference following the game. “It was a gradually developing knee problem.”
Gordon may now be unavailable for Newcastle’s FA Cup quarterfinal matchup against holders Manchester City on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium. The setback also occurred in front of England manager Gareth Southgate, who is scheduled to announce his final pre-European Championship squad this coming week for forthcoming friendlies at Wembley against Brazil and Belgium.

Due to injuries, Newcastle is currently without several important first-team players, including Joelinton, Callum Wilson, Nick Pope, and the suspended Sandro Tonali. Kieran Trippier was also not present against Chelsea and is expected to miss the trip to City due to a knock sustained during the 3-0 victory over Wolves last weekend.

Dan Burn is expected to be OK after going off after an awkward fall against Chelsea, but Harvey Barnes, who missed more than four months of action earlier this season with a foot issue before finally returning in February, did not play against Chelsea due to a hamstring injury that will likely keep him out until after the international break.

Howe stated: “Harvey felt a slight tightness in his hamstrings when he came in against the Wolves. Although it’s not too bad based on our scan, it’s enough to keep him out tonight and most likely against Manchester City.

Following the game, he made the following statement on Burn: “I think Burn is OK, but I don’t know that 100%.”
