Yohan Cabaye suffered another groin injury in the second half of the game on Saturday and had to go off, and that’s a little worrying because he had a double operation just less than a year ago that kept him out of the side for a few months.
Yohan Cabaye – groin injury
But it seems that the injury he sustained on Saturday is not too bad, but we’d be surprised if he;’s even in the squad for the game on Wednesday night in the Capital One Cup.
Much better to let Yohan fully recover, and he could be ready for the game a week tonight at Everton, which will be a big test for the side against an in-form side, who are unbeaten and 6th top of the league under new manager Roberto Martinez.
The other two players out injured are Shola Ameobi who is out for three weeks with a knock, and Steven Taylor has a hamstring strain and both will be out for another two to three weeks.
And that’s a pity for Steven, because the local lad would have got a game on Wednesday night against Leeds United, to see if he could strengthen a weak looking Newcastle defense against Hull City on Saturday.
Jonas Gutierrez has recovered from his hamstring strain, and is due to return to training today, and it seems the reason we haven’t seen too much of young Massadio Haidara this season, is that he has a knee injury.
