About Football Express UK

Chris Wood might join the rest of the squad and play the match for Newcastle United against Everton on Wednesday. As per journalists, Chris Wood is travelling back to the UK and is likely to play against Everton.

Journalist Craig Hope has given a major boost for Newcastle United ahead of Premier League match against Everton.

Craig Hope spoke about it on Wednesday on Twitter:

“Chris Wood should be fine for Newcastle game v Everton on Tuesday & is travelling back to UK. There had been a virus outbreak in New Zealand national-team camp which forced cancellation of yesterday’s game against Uzbekistan.”

Meanwhile, Newcastle United and Everton are within just a four-point difference of each other. However, the Toffees do have a game in hand. This match could decide the fate of the two teams in this Premier League season.

A win for Newcastle United at St James’ Park will help them make up the deficit and add to the momentum. The Magpies had a successful January transfer window and would expect the signings to show their best form.

On the other hand, a defeat for Frank Lampard’s new side would drag them into the relegation dogfight. However, the team seems to be confident as Lampard tasted his first victory in the FA Cup.

It is exactly why Hope’s update on Wood is fine for the game next week is surely going to boost the Magpies. The New Zealand international is already tipped to be a major success on Tyneside.

Pundits on Chris Wood signing

As the words of former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell goes:

“His goal record is very good and aerially he is brilliant. When you have the likes of Trippier whipping the ball in, it would appear to be another very clever signing. Wood is a striker who can go and attack it. He is as good as anyone at attacking the a ball in the box.

I just think they need weapons who can keep them up. Wood is one of them. I think he’d be a very good signing for them. It’s a move that definitely weakens Burnley as well, which can only be a good thing for Newcastle.”

Both Howe and Newcastle United fanbase would be looking forward to the striker for fantastic goals.
