Manager Chris Hughton will make late calls on Pascal Gross (ankle) and Dale Stephens (hamstring) while Gaetan Bong is a doubt.

Newcastle United striker Salomon Rondon (thigh) and defender Ciaran Clark (thigh) have been ruled out.

Paul Dummett (hamstring) could return, however. 

Did you know?

Newcastle are targeting their first win of the PL season at the ninth attempt. Only once have they ever failed to win any of their opening nine top-flight matches, back in 1898/99 when they were winless in the first 10.

Joselu has scored two of Newcastle’s three PL goals at St James’ Park this season.

Chris Hughton is aiming for his first victory at St James’ Park as an away manager, having so far been unable to win there against his former club in four league matches (P4 W0 D1 L3).

Glenn Murray has scored five PL goals this season, with only Chelsea’s Eden Hazard netting more, with seven. Only one of Murray’s strikes, however, has come away from home.
