NEWCASTLE are just days away from participating in the biggest game of the clubs recent history – but they have a goalkeeping nightmare.
The Magpies’ number one keeper Nick Pope saw red for a moment of madness against Liverpool.
And now fans fear that it could rule him out of their Carabao Cup final against Manchester United.
Can Nick Pope play in the Carabao Cup final?
Nick Pope will NOT play in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester United on Sunday due to receiving a straight red against Liverpool.
The English keeper handled the ball outside of his box to deny Mohamed Salah a clear goal-scoring opportunity.
And in an unfortunate series of events, second in command Martin Dubravka will also be unavailable for next Sunday’s huge final.
Why can’t Martin Dubravka play?
Martin Dubravka will be cup-tied having represented Mancheter United in the Carabao Cup this season.
Meaning that Newcastle have no option but to play third choice keeper Loris Karius.
