Steve Bruce Confirms Host of Players Who Started Against Tottenham Are Doubtful for Leicester Clash

Newcastle could be without as many as six of the players who featured in the 1-0 victory over Tottenham for their Carabao Cup clash with Leicester on Wednesday.

Manager Steve Bruce enjoyed an unexpected win at Spurs on the weekend but has been hit with some worrying news that just under half of his starting XI are now doubts for the game.

Brazilian forward Joelinton scored his first goal for the Toon since joining from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim for £40m but now joins a list of injured players including Jamaal Lascelles, Miguel Almiron, Allan Saint-Maximin, Christian Atsu and Fabian Schar.
