Sheffield Utd were left heartbroken last weekend when they looked to be heading for an excellent victory over Tottenham, only for late dramatics bringing about a complete turnaround.
Gustavo Hamer's second goal of the season put the Blades in front with a little over 15 minutes of normal time remaining, but Spurs substitute Richarlison stole the headlines by equalising and then assisting Dejan Kulusevski for a last-gasp winner.
After three Premier League defeats in a row, Newcastle stopped the rot last weekend when they overcame Brentford in a cagey affair, and Eddie Howe will be keen to see his men kick on now and propel themselves into the top half of the table.
The Magpies made their much-anticipated return to the Champions League on Tuesday and came away from the San Siro with a respectable point against last season's semi-finalists AC Milan.
THE TEAM NEWS
Centre-back John Egan is fit and could line up in the back three at the expense of Chris Basham, while the Blades still have a lengthy list of players currently absent with injury.
Paul Heckingbottom is particularly stretched up front as Oli McBurnie will sit this fixture out due to his suspension
PREDICTED XI (3-4-1-1): Foderingham; Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Robinson; Bogle, Hamer, Souza, Norwood, Thomas; McAtee; Archer
UNAVAILABLE: Osborn (Injured), Baldock (Injured), Lowe (Injured), Norrington-Davies (Injured), Fleck (Injured), McBurnie (Suspended), Jebbison (Illness), Brewster (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Osula (Injured)
Midfielders Joe Willock and Joelinton are absent once more, which means that Eddie Howe is a little light on midfield options, while he is expected to reshuffle his forward line once again with the likes of Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson strong candidates to come into the starting XI.
Howe may be forced to rest Kieran Trippier at some point, given the recent workload, and that has the potential to happen here give that they face one of the promoted sides.
PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Tonali; Almiron, Wilson, Gordon
UNAVAILABLE: Krafth (Injured), Willock (Injured), Joelinton (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Dubravka (Illness), Manquillo (Fitness)
Newcastle hit a bit of a sticky patch recently but a grinding win against Brentford followed by an impressive Champions League draw with AC Milan has got them back on track. They now embark on what is undoubtedly a favourable run of fixtures in the Premier League. Fatigue shouldn't be a factor owing to the fact Newcastle will have had five days to recover by the time this fixture takes place, so an away win looks probable.
TIP: NEWCASTLE TO WIN
