More bad news on the injury front for Newcastle as we hear that Rolando Aarons has still not recovered from that hamstring injury of his, and he will miss the game tomorrow night at Tottenham and home game against Sunderland on Sunday- two vital games for the Magpies.
Rolando Aarons in action against Liverpool
The news is that Rolando is still not ready to return from the hamstring problem he has had almost all season, and you have to wonder if bringing him back against medical advice for the Capital One Cup game at Manchester City was a good move for the manager, even though he scored after six minutes in that game.
He was injured back in September, but came back early for the Manchester City game but then picked up the same injury again, and has been out for a few months now.
Newcastle have had so many injuries this season and it’s affected our results, and if we could have had players like Rolando, Siem de Jong, Mehdi Abeid, Davide Santon and now Tim Krul and Rob Elliot all available – we could have a strong side.
But we continue to be top of the injury league – we currently have nine injuries tired with Arsenal – and we’ve noticed that Chelsea pick up very few injuries.
So we should probably send a spy down to Stanford Bridge and see what Jose Mourinho and his coaches do to keep the number inf injuries down.
Newcastle’s injury record this season is not only due to bad luck – we are sure of that.
Maybe on the positive side Mehdi Abeid could have recovered from his ankle/foot injury?
He’s the only injured player, apart from Rolando, who is expected to return from injury this month. 🙁
