Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson is a major doubt for the Magpies ahead of their game with Chelsea in the Premier League later this week. Newcastle United and Chelsea meet at the St. James Park on Saturday afternoon for the first game of Matchday 9 in the English topflight.

The Magpies could be without their leading marksman Callum Wilson who limped off during the last game before the international break. He sustained a hamstring injury in the 2-0 loss at Southampton in the league.
On the hamstring injury, The Athletic revealed that the injury is not as serious as first feared when he sustained the injury at the St. Mary's Stadium and that he remains a doubt for the Chelsea game on Saturday afternoon. For Mark Douglas of The Chronicle, the early signs are that the England international would be fit to take his place in the Newcastle United starting XI.

It was disclosed that Callum Wilson will be fit for the game if he can get through the next 48 hours of training. He has been in good form for Newcastle United since his transfer from relegated team Bournemouth.
The Cherries sanctioned his sale for just £20m. Since his arrival on Tyneside, Callum Wilson has scored six goals plus one assist in eight Premier League matches. In the last home game, Callum Wilson scored twice in the second half to lead his team to a 2-1 victory over Everton thus taking his league tally to six goals.
Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce would be targeting another big win over Chelsea just like what was obtainable last season when the Magpies scored a late goal to secure three points. Chelsea dominated proceedings from start to finish before Isaac Hayden scored in added time to hand his team the points at the expense of the Blues.
