Newcastle’s trip to Everton postponed after Covid cases and injuries | Football News

News Story

Newcastle’s match away at Everton on Thursday has been postponed due to injuries and Covid cases in Eddie Howe’s squad.

Manager Eddie Howe said on Monday that Newcastle were “dangerously close” to being unable to field a full team for the match.

Newcastle were only able to name eight substitutes, including two goalkeepers, instead of the maximum nine for Monday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United, with the squad depleted due to injuries and COVID-19 cases.

They also lost Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser to injury against United, while full-back Javier Manquillo picked up his fifth yellow card of the campaign and will sit out at Goodison Park, adding to Howe’s selection woes.
