Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe will be absent from the club’s next Premier League match after testing positive for Covid-19 during a routine test on Friday.

Eddie will now self-isolate in line with government guidance, meaning he will miss Saturday’s home match against Brentford at St. James’ Park – the first fixture since his arrival at the club.
Assistant head coaches Jason Tindall and Graeme Jones will lead the team in Eddie’s absence.
Eddie said: “I’m very disappointed that I won’t be there with you all at St. James’ Park tomorrow, but it is incredibly important that I follow the guidelines and self-isolate.
“I’d like to reassure everyone that I feel fine, and while this is unwelcome news for me, I know it hasn’t derailed our preparations for what is an important game.
“I have been, and will be, in constant communication with my coaching team and the players, both tomorrow and during the week, and I know they will be giving everything on and off the pitch.”

First and foremost I hope he recovers and has nothing more than mild symptoms.

This is classic Newcastle! At least it hasn't impacted training for the first game and has happened at the 11th hour. Could argue the best game for him to miss would be Arsenal, so looking through optimistic glasses (I do posses a pair), if he was ever going to get it, now is probably the best time.
