Newcastle: Dubravka, Gordon and Longstaff all doubts for Champions League tie against AC Milan

Eddie Howe says Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is a doubt for their Champions League decider against AC Milan.

Dubravka started their 4-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday in his first start since coming in for the injured Nick Pope, but did not train on Tuesday along with Anthony Gordon.

Asked whether Dubravka is fit for the AC Milan game, Howe said: “That is slightly unclear.

“It’s not a position I want to rotate. Every team benefits from a settled goalkeeper and back four, that’s been the way of working with my defensive structure. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.”

Howe refused to say whether Gordon will be available for Wednesday’s game at St James’ Park – but Callum Wilson and Sean Longstaff are in contention to start.

“He’s in consideration,” said Howe about Longstaff. “We have a lot of information to digest. Not just him but Callum too.

“I’ve got some big calls to make for the first time in a long time.”
