After undergoing surgery to realign his shoulder, Nick Pope will be out for four months after suffering the injury during last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United.


Pope’s injury extends Newcastle’s already extensive list of injuries, and Martin Dubravka enters the game in place of the goalkeeper. At least thirteen Magpies players are either out or questionable for Sunday’s Premier League matchup against Tottenham Hotspur (4:30 p.m. kickoff).

The Magpies will try to recover from their 3-0 loss to Everton on Thursday. Pope was photographed at Newcastle Central Station with his left arm in a sling prior to the journey to Goodison Park. The photo was posted to Twitter by Strawberry Pub with the following message: “Today, we saw our friend Jimmy Culham assist a specific person in getting off the train. Happy healing, Nick Pope, from all of us.


Pope suffered a serious injury, but Eddie Howe, the head coach of Newcastle, is optimistic that the goalie will return to action before the end of the campaign.


Howe stated earlier this week that “the period of recovery for the surgery will be roughly four months.”


Pope won’t be back in the starting lineup for at least April 2024 as a result, and there’s no assurance that he will. It will depend on Dubravka’s performances and whether the team chooses to move on a goalkeeper in January, given rumors about former Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale.
