Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has been ruled out for six weeks after he picked up a hamstring problem at the end of last month. According to the report from the stables of The Athletic, Newcastle United star Wilsonwill miss out on several Premier League games until after the October international break as a result of the hamstring injury sustained during the second half of the Premier League home clash with Southampton.
England international Wilson limped off with the hamstring problem during the Saints encounter shortly after he scored his second Premier League goal of the season. Ahead of last weekend’s game at Manchester United, Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce told reporters in his pre-match presser that a timescale has not been determined for Wilson.
Newcastle United missed the impact of Wilson in their attack against the Red Devils on Saturday after they were beaten 4-1. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice for Manchester Unitedin his first game since returning to the club before the end of this summer’s transfer window. Bruno Fernandes and England international Jesse Lingard were also on target for the Red Devils, while Spanish defender Javier Manquillo scored thelone Newcastle United goal.
Wilson will miss the Premier League games against Leeds United, Watford and Wolves before the October international break and he could return for the Tottenham Hotspur game immediately after the international break next month.
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is already under pressure and the absence of Wilson for the upcoming three league games is a big blow to him. The Magpies are yet to taste victory in four matches this season. Newcastle United began the season with two straight losses before picking up a point in the 2-2 draw at home to Southampton. The Southampton game preceded the 4-1 defeat to Manchester United. The Magpies have picked up one point from four league matches this season.
