Eddie Howe and Newcastle have been left with very little choice in recent weeks given the injury crisis at St. James’ Park. Lewis Hall and Tino Livramento have seen an increase in game time, while Lewis Miley and Ben Parkinson have also featured in the first-team.
The Toon are still fighting on all four fronts heading into the festive period, but know they will have to win the final two games in the Champions League if they want to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition and Enrique feels his former side need more additions across the board.
Enrique told Squawka: “The problem for me, I like the left-back they signed, I like the right-back they signed, but you cannot always rely on signing young players. I believe in the signing of young players, yes, but not all your subs can be young players.
“For example Lewis Hall. I think he’s a good prospect, I think he can do well, obviously, it depends on him. But he’s not been doing well, it’s all the pressure on him, all of a sudden from nothing to, ‘Okay, let’s go and play’.”
“I think they need a midfielder, because with Tonali now you have a big problem. 100% they need a midfielder.
“I think you need someone, for Almiron, as well on that side, left-footed, someone that can compete with Almiron for the starting position. And probably a centre-back as well.
“Lascelles is there as a third choice. But even then I believe they need a centre-back as well, you know.”
