At today's press conference, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe broke down in tears upon hearing that a crucial player had suffered a career-ending injury during practice. Howe's concerns about injuries will increase as the player won't return until the following year.

Newcastle United’s injury-related absence of Kieran Trippier is a major setback as they get ready to play Chelsea and Manchester City.

Trippier’s calf injury was first reported by manager Eddie Howe, who was unable to provide information about the extent of the injury or how long Trippier would likely be out.

According to Mail Sport, recent scans have shown that, although the injury is not as bad as first thought, it will probably keep the 33-year-old out of action until the end of the month.

Trippier’s absence is especially concerning because this news comes as Newcastle looks to move up the Premier League table and take seventh place.
His absence will be felt greatly, robbing the team of his defensive expertise and experience ahead of Monday night’s match against Chelsea.

Trippier’s injury also prevents him from playing in the FA Cup quarterfinals against Manchester City, which further jeopardizes Newcastle’s chances of winning the trophy.

With the difficult task of taking on the cup holders, his absence will leave a gap in the defensive lineup for the team.

In addition, Trippier’s injury raises questions about whether he will be able to play for England in their upcoming March friendlies against Belgium and Brazil.

Gareth Southgate’s options are limited due to the injuries to fellow right-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James, which will complicate the national team’s preparations.
Trippier’s probable absence from these international matches may have more significant repercussions, particularly in light of the fact that he is anticipated to be included in England’s Euro 2024 roster.

His versatility and experience make him an invaluable member of the national team, and his absence would surely affect their tactical options and defensive stability.

Regarding Trippier’s recuperation schedule, there is hope as it is anticipated that he may play again for Newcastle on March 31 against West Ham after the international break.

His return would give the team a much-needed lift and raise expectations for a successful season finale.
