Willock missed a lot of games this season because of problems with his Achilles and leg. He wasn’t able to play in the first half of Newcastle’s 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage last week.

Joe Willock, a midfielder for Newcastle United, is likely to miss Saturday’s Premier League home game against Tottenham Hotspur because of an injury to his Achilles. This was revealed by manager Eddie Howe on Friday.

Because of problems with his Achilles and leg, Willock had to leave the recent 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage during the first half.

Newcastle hopes that Willock’s injury won’t be a long-term loss, but they’re having a hard time with a lot of players out, like Lascelles, Pope, Trippier, and Wilson.

Howe told reporters, “Joe has asked for more testing from a specialist regarding his Achilles.” “The injury has been complicated, and there have been setbacks along the way.”

The most recent report is mostly good, which means that the healing process is moving forward.

“However, there are times when he feels uncomfortable.” He probably won’t be ready because of the game coming up against Tottenham.

He might come back for the rest of the season, but that’s not a sure thing. Making sure his long-term recovery goes as planned is our top concern. This may mean giving him a short break.

Howe said that defender Tino Livramento is getting close to coming back from injury: “He hasn’t been in team training yet, but he’s been working out on his own on the field.”

“Lewis Hall hasn’t been to any training sessions this week, which is a little concerning since last week.”

“We have other players progressing well behind the scenes, and I’m hopeful that in the near future, we can welcome back three or four of them.”

Newcastle is currently in eighth place, 13 points behind Spurs in fourth place. Even though Howe’s team beat Spurs 6-1 at home last season, he praised their technical and physical skill.

“I have great respect for their tactical acumen and physicality,” he told me. “Manager Ange Postecoglou deserves praise for the great work he’s done and the way of thinking he’s brought to the team.” This season, they’ve done a great job.
