Mohamed Diame recalled for Newcastle's home game against Watford
Rafa Benitez, without the suspended Isaac Hayden, has picked Diame ahead of fit-again Mikel Merino for the game (3pm kick-off).
Merino is among the substitutes at St James's Park.
Otherwise, Benitez's starting XI is unchanged from the side that was beaten 4-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.
Newcastle are looking to end a run of three successive league defeats.
Meanwhile, former United defender Daryl Janmaat is on the Watford bench.
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Newcastle team: Elliot; Yedlin, Clark, Lejeune, Manquillo; Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Murphy; Gayle, Joselu. Subs: Newcastle subs: Darlow, Gamez, Mbemba, Merino, Aarons, Perez, Mitrovic.
WATFORD: Gomes; Mariappa, Kabasele, Britos; Femenía, Cleverley, Doucouré, Zeegelaar; Hughes, Richarlison; Gray. Subs: Karnezis, Janmaat, Prodl, Watson, Carrillo, Capoue, Pereyra.
