Toon in training: Gearing up for Gunners game
Eddie Howe has been unable to take training this week, with Newcastle United's new head coach still self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19 on Friday, but the work continues ahead of Saturday's trip to Arsenal.
Jason Tindall and Graeme Jones, alongside the rest of Howe's new-look coaching staff, have been leading this week's training sessions, with the team looking to build on several positives from last weekend's 3-3 draw with Brentford.
Joelinton put in a bright showing against the Bees - and showed off an even brighter hairstyle on Wednesday - and Allan Saint-Maximin grabbed his third goal of the season. He was in full flow again in training, while Fabian Schär, who came off late on against Brentford, also trained and Joe Willock is hoping to keep his place in the starting XI against his boyhood club.
United's under-23s were 3-1 winners at Nottingham Forest on Monday night, thanks to an Elliot Anderson hat-trick, and the teenager trained with the senior squad along with the likes of Matty Bondswell, Jack Young and Dylan Stephenson.
