‘Huge blow’ – Newcastle United key player ruled out of Everton as £38m replacement lined up



Anthony Gordon’s red card, although unfortunate, could potentially benefit Newcastle United in the long run. Despite his significant contributions to the dramatic win against St James’ Park, Gordon’s two late bookings resulted in his suspension for the next match against Everton.

While his absence is a blow to Newcastle, especially considering his form this season, it could be seen as a blessing in disguise. Had Gordon not been sent off, he would have been walking a disciplinary tightrope, just one booking away from a two-match suspension. This suspension against Everton allows him to serve his ban against his former club and then return with a clean slate.

Furthermore, with only two games remaining before the 10-booking cut-off point of 32 matches, Gordon will have the opportunity to play without the looming threat of a two-match suspension. This situation provides Newcastle with a chance to manage Gordon’s disciplinary record strategically and ensure his availability for crucial matches toward the end of the season.

Although his absence against Everton may be felt, the timing of the suspension could ultimately work in Newcastle’s favor as they navigate the final stages of the campaign.
