Newcastle made it four wins on the spin as the Magpies grabbed the only goal of the game in narrow victory over Liverpool at St James’ Park on Saturday – but the win came at a cost.
Gabriel Obertan cut a forlorn figure as he was stretchered off during the first half with a serious looking thigh injury. The French winger has been outstanding since his return to the limelight following a summer of uncertainty – Obertan was transfer listed and left to train with the youth team. Although there were several enquiries about the player’s availability no firm offers were received and Obertan remained. His return to the squad – starting the last four games – has sparked a revival on Tyneside but this latest setback could keep the winger out for at least a month providing young England winger Rolando Aarons with his chance. Papiss Cisse was also withdrawn because of an ongoing knee issue. Nov 1 - 6:49 PM
