THE TEAM NEWS

NEWCASTLE

  • Newcastle produced another late show as two injury-time goals from substitute Florian Lejeune earned a vital point against Everton.
  • The Magpies failed to build on that as they were held to a disappointing goalless draw against League 1 side Oxford in the FA Cup.
  • Steve Bruce could have a couple of new signings on board come kick-off with wing-back Valentino Lazaro set to be included on the bench.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Dubravka; Yedlin, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie; Almiron, Bentaleb, Hayden, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton

Unavailable: Manquillo (Injured), Gayle (Injured), Dummett (Injured), Colback (Injured), Ki (Injured), Muto (Injured), Willems (Injured), Krafth (Injured), Shelvey (Injured)

Doubtful: Carroll (Injured), Lejeune (Injured)

NORWICH

  • Norwich pushed Tottenham all the way but could not hang on to a point having levelled the game in the 70th minute in their last league game.
  • The Canaries got back to winning ways in the FA Cup against Burnley and will go all-out to back that up as they return to league action.
  • Emiliano Buendia has missed Norwich's last two games with a thigh problem but has a good chance of returning for this important game.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann, Hanley, Byram; Tettey, McLean; Rupp, Buendia, Cantwell; Pukki

Unavailable: Klose (Injured), Godfrey (Suspended)

Doubtful: Buendia (Injured), Cantwell (Injured), Amadou (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Newcastle have earned four points from their last two Premier League matches and will look to add to that tally as they host bottom-side Norwich. The visitors must start picking up wins to give themselves a chance at staying up and should at least score in this game but are likely to concede too.
