Carabao Cup: Six Newcastle United players out of action ahead of Leicester City game

Newcastle United's new signing Allan Saint-Maximin is currently out of action after he sustained a hamstring injury and could miss Wednesday's Carabao Cup game against Leicester City according to Sky Sports. 

This comes as a massive blow for Newcastle's manager Steve Bruce as six other players are injured and could be heavy doubts ahead of the fixture. 

Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schär, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, Christian Atsu and Jonjo Shelvey are the players set to be out of action which will mean that young players could get their opportunity to feature and cover the gaps. 

The Magpies will be going into this games with a slight confidence boost having won their first Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur but this particular game did a lot for the players' ligaments which will require time out to recover.
