Nick Pope got injured in Newcastle’s win over Manchester United

Nick Pope, the custodian for Newcastle United, appears to have suffered a complicated displacement when diving in the last moments of his team’s 1-0 victory at home against Manchester United. Eddie Howe is concerned that Pope may require surgery on his shoulder.

Ten Hag acknowledged that Howe’s were the better team, although the visitors believed they had equalised when Antony’s deflected attempt against Harry Maguire was disallowed for an offside.

The Dutchman evaded questions over his supposed argument with the underwhelming Anthony Martial, who was taken off the pitch in the second half. He stated,

“It’s about the team, not about Anthony Martial. “We try to get the team excited and responsive, and then you become a little more aggressive in your coaching.” That is typical.

“It will be a massive blow if Nick is ruled out for any length of time,” stated the manager of Newcastle, whose already injury-plagued club managed to move up to fifth place thanks to a goal from Anthony Gordon in the 55th minute against Erik ten Hag’s struggling squad.

“It looked innocuous and he’s made those dives thousands of times but those are normally the serious injuries. Nick was in distress. He was in pain. We’ll get a specialist opinion but it doesn’t look good.”

“We have to say the credit goes to Newcastle,” said Manchester United’s manager. “They were better than us, more proactive.”

“If you lose you’re always unhappy and we talk with the team about the reasons why. But this team is resilient. I’m not hoping we get better, I’m sure we will. We have to do better but I’m sure my team will pick this up. I’m sure they have the character to do this. You always want perfect performances but we have recently seen some good performances.”

Howe was understandably happy that Newcastle had already lost 11 of its senior players to injury and suspension. He declared, “That was one of our best performances of the season.” “We were excellent both on and off the ball, in my opinion.”
