Already in the middle of September and about to host Bournemouth for the Premier League’s Matchday 8 game, Newcastle just made official the team’s 25-man squad for the first half of the season covering the August-to-December span, both months included.

It’s been six games played in seven match days, though, due to the postponement of all fixtures scheduled for play last weekend after the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II. As a result, Newcastle will play West Ham away from home at some point in the upcoming weeks. That will probably happen already into the 2023 calendar year because of the highly congested schedule boasting a freaking World Cup smacked right in the middle of November and December.

No shockers when it comes to who and who did not make the cut, although it’s interesting to get positive signs of both Jonjo Shelvey’s and Karl Darlow’s recovering from their respective injuries after both got included in Eddie Howe’s list of warriors for the next three months of play.

Emil Krafth, who tore his ACL a few weeks ago, was left out of the final list as widely expected as he’ll miss all season going through an arduous period of healing to fix knee issues.

Here is the full 25-man squad registered for the first half of the 2022/23 Premier League season, broken down by position and ordered by uniform number.

Note: U21 players—such as first-teamer Elliot Anderson—don’t count for the 25-man squad although they are still allowed to feature in Premier League games, thus their omission in the official list released by Newcastle.
