Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren revealed the injury sustained by Vurnon Anita during the draw against Southampton may not be as bad as originally feared.
Anita was surprisingly given the nod - ahead of Cheick Tiote - for the opener at St James’ Park and justified his inclusion with a battling performance on Sunday. However the Dutch midfielders’ afternoon was cut short following an awkward fall which left Anita requiring treatment before departing on a stretcher. Post-match McClaren was able to confirm that the 26 year-old was moving freely although Anita will be assessed fully next week. Having started just 17 PL games last season the former Ajax player will be keen to try and retain his place for next weekends’ trip to the Liberty Stadium. Aug 9 - 4:33 PM
