Alexander Isak, a star for Newcastle United, may be out for a considerable amount of time due to his dead leg, according to injury expert Ben Dinnery.
The Swedish teenager scored a brilliant goal against Newcastle in their midweek match, and in the second half, VAR almost prevented him from adding a second.
Despite having a good start to the game with his goal, he had a dead leg in the second half of their defeat to Liverpool and was replaced by Chris Wood in the 64th minute just as the Reds equalised.
Although Dinnery claims there is nothing significant to imply he would be away for a long time, he emphasises that this sort of injury is not a simple knock and his rehabilitation timetable might be extended. It is yet unknown when he will return.
He stated, “He [Alexander Isak] picked up a dead leg again, nothing too serious,” on the Premier FPL Injuries broadcast. One of these ailments makes it impossible to say with certainty that he will be fine for the weekend. These may progress and be quite painful; one that comes to mind is Raphinha, which led to the player being admitted to the hospital and required surgery which also keep him out for up to a month on the sidelines.

Although nothing at this moment suggests it is severe, and as I stated, Eddie Howe did say that it was always the intention to get him off in and around that hour mark, they are not the tiny or faint knock that leads people to think it is possible that the timescale may be extended.
SportEarly thoughts Regarding Isak
Eddie Howe and the supporters will undoubtedly want to see their record-breaking acquisition start against Crystal Palace this weekend and keep up his excellent goal-scoring form, but for the time being, we will have to wait and see.
Howe will be hopeful he can deliver another performance like he did against Liverpool if he does return in time for the weekend.
