Newcastle’s Trippier faces spell on sidelines after breaking foot

London (AFP) – Kieran Trippier has been ruled out of Newcastle’s “upcoming fixtures” after fracturing a bone in his foot during a 1-0 win over Aston Villa at the weekend, the club said on Monday.

The England full-back has been impressive for Eddie Howe’s side since joining the Magpies from Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window, scoring twice in a three-match winning run that has lifted them out of the relegation zone.

The 31-year-old, who scored from a free-kick in the first half at St James’ Park on Sunday, was substituted shortly after half time after picking up the injury.

“Trippier underwent an X-ray immediately after the game and scans have shown a fracture to the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot,” Newcastle said in a statement.

The club’s recent good run has lifted them one place clear of the drop zone, four points ahead of 18th-placed Norwich.
