Hammers get big early boost for Newcastle clash

Newcastle suffered a big blow ahead of their weekend game against the Hammers during the 2-0 defeat of Burnley this afternoon.

The Hammers have received a boost knowing that Harvey Barnes is injured and unavailable for the match which may bring a smile to Vladi Coufal’s face.

But his replacement today Anthony Gordon who was part of the team which tore Sheffield United apart last weekend is now set to miss the game at the London Stadium according to .https://www.geordiebootboys.com/

The left winger showed silly petulance during the game at Burney when deciding to kick the ball away which earned him a suspension as a result.

It’s good news for the Irons who have a fully fit squad although they have their next Europa Cup game on Thursday evening away at Freiburg.

However, Eddie Howe has Alexnader Isak and Joelinton capable of playing in that role although Gordon is considered to be a standout performer for the Toon.
