‘Incredible’ Newcastle 31-year-old will now miss UCL game against PSG on Wednesday.

Newcastle United are the walking wounded heading into their first Champions League game at St James’ Park in 20 years.

Eddie Howe is dealing with a string of injuries at the moment, as he juggles with Newcastle competing on multiple fronts.

The Toon boss rotated once again on Saturday, making eight changes to the team that had beaten Manchester City in the Carabao Cup. The changes worked, with Newcastle winning 2-0 against Burnley courtesy of a Miguel Almiron screamer and an ice cool penalty from Alexander Isak.

There will likely be a couple of changes again for Wednesday night’s game, where the Magpies face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

It is going to be an incredible occasion, but one that some of Newcastle’s biggest names are going to miss – including Callum Wilson.Callum Wilson suffers gruesome tooth injury against Arsenal - Daily Star

Newcastle will be without Callum Wilson against PSG

According to the Telegraph, Wilson will be unavailable for the Champions League clash with PSG.

The ‘incredible‘ 31-year-old has missed the Magpies’ previous two games with a hamstring complaint, and his now set to miss a third.

That is massively disappointing, as Wilson is one of our key players and our chief goal threat. He had been in brilliant form before this injury, boasting four goals this season.

His injury means that Isak will certainly start against the Ligue 1 champions. He will hope to play much better than he did on Saturday. While he did score in the win over Burnley, it was far from a vintage performance from Isak.

Wilson is not the only big name who will miss the PSG clash. Sven Botman is also going to be absent, as is Joelinton. The Brazilian made an appearance off the bench on Saturday, but was quickly withdrawn after suffering a hamstring issue.

The injuries are mounting up for Newcastle, as competing in three competitions takes its toll.
