Team news
Ibrahim Konate is expected to return to the starting XI, along with Luis Diaz and Dominic Szoboszlai who were rotated against Burnley.

Andrew Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas remain out, meaning Joe Gomez will likely continue from left-back.

Newcastle will again be without numerous options, including the likes of Nick Pope, Harvey Barnes and Sandro Tonali.

Callum Wilson could come into the XI, which means Isak is forced out wide or will start from the bench.
