Bruce pleased with Willock

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce took Arsenal attacking midfielder Joe Willock on loan in January, and has been exceptionally pleased with the impact that he has made since joining the Magpies.

Willock struggled for regular game time at Arsenal under Mikel Arteta, with the arrival of Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid having only been set to make matters more difficult for the Englishman.

“He has played further forward before but I’m also wary of the impact he’s had in midfield so there’s a decision to be made. I’ve been very pleased with him. He has given us something different and has the energy in midfield and he can score a goal,” said Bruce.

Amid the attacking injury crisis at Newcastle at present, there will be greater emphasis on Willock to step up and fill the void left by those that are out.

Wilson, Almiron & Saint-Maximin updates

Steve Bruce, today, provided an update on his three main attacking talents, all of whom are currently sidelined. Newcastle have lost Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson to injury, which has had a big impact on their offensive output.

The Magpies have no further injury concerns ahead of Aston Villa, though, which will please Bruce.

“We’ve got no new injuries to report. Javier Manquillo has worked extremely hard and was a week or two quicker than expected so it was good to see him around it. Fernández is back amongst it too which is good news.”

The Newcastle boss seemed upbeat regarding the latest news on his star attacking trio:

“Everything is going to plan [with Almirón, Saint-Maximin and Wilson]. Almirón is making particularly good progress which is good news. The international break may just do us a favour so let’s hope they can keep responding the way they are.”

Newcastle will play Villa at 8pm on Friday evening.
