Newcaslte United face Liverpool tonight and need as many players fit and ready to play as possible.
They face a mini-injury crisis and Liverpool are flying after beating Bournemouth 9-0.
There may be some good news though.
Sky Sport’s Keith Downie tweeted: “Alex Isak has been granted his visa and is in line to make his Newcastle debut tonight at Anfield.”
The £60million Swedish striker signed from Real Sociedad last Friday but missed Sunday’s draw at Wolves because his visa was not sorted in time.
This was a rumour from Liverpool earlier in the day…

The anger at the delay has been felt on social media with some trying to see the funny side though:
Isak on joining Newcaslte
Isak said: “It was a big, big decision for me but it is a decision I am really happy with.
“It is a great, historical club that I think anyone would like to play for, with amazing fans.
“They were a big part of why I came here – and also the club’s project, which is one that I really believe in.
“I want to win things.”
