Kieran Trippier is set to be sidelined for Newcastle United’s upcoming fixtures after fracturing a bone

Newcastle have confirmed that Kieran Trippier suffered a broken foot in their win against Aston Villa at St James’ Park.

Newcastle moved four points clear of the relegation zone with a crucial 1-0 home victory over Villa on Sunday. Trippier was the match-winner as he fired home an unstoppable 35th-minute free-kick, but he was forced off early in the second half due to a foot injury.

A Newcastle statement on Monday said scans showed a fracture to the fifth metatarsal in his left foot. 

Trippier, 31, has made a significant impression since joining from Atletico Madrid. He has scored free-kicks in successive wins over Everton and Villa to help lift Newcastle four points clear of the relegation zone.
