Update on Newcastle United player following injury scare against Manchester City

Alexander Isak, a striker for Newcastle United, has downplayed concerns about injuries.

Alexander Isak, a striker for Newcastle United, is optimistic that he will be well and available for Saturday’s (3:00 p.m. kickoff) match against Burnley at St. James’ Park.

At the third round stage of the Carabao Cup last night, the Magpies eliminated English and European champions Manchester City after the Sweden international scored the game’s lone goal on 53 minutes.

However, Isak gave United a scare when he had to leave the game less than 10 minutes after scoring due to an injury. However, the 24-year-old downplayed the severity when Eddie Howe disclosed the midfielder had a “tight calf” following the game.

“I think I’m OK,” Isak said to Sky Sports. “Hopefully nothing,” she said.

Isak & Co. will visit Manchester United in the following round to play in a rematch of the final at Wembley from the previous season as compensation for Newcastle’s victory.

Isak said, “He [Eddie Howe] wanted us to get closer to them, to sacrifice, and to attack them during the City game. That is what we did, and in the second half, we won a lot of balls to build on.

“We aim to place in every competition in which we take part. It’s on to the next, even though we won today. When a competition comes up, we must concentrate.

Callum Wilson, an attacking teammate of Isak’s, was not included in the matchday squad against Man City due to hamstring soreness, according to Howe.

The week ahead for Newcastle is jam-packed with games against West Ham United on the road, Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, and Burnley in the Premier League.
