Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback is a doubt for tomorrow’s Premier League trip to Manchester City.

The former Sunderland man – who shook off a calf problem to start against Chelsea last weekend – is struggling with a hamstring strain, and Cheick Tiote, back in training after a knee injury, and Yoan Gouffran are among those standing by.

Winger Gabriel Obertan (hamstring) is out and joins defenders Massadio Haidara (knee) and Steven Taylor and Paul Dummett (both hamstring), midfielder Rolando Aarons (calf), and striker Emmanuel Riviere (knee) on the sidelines.

Provisional squad: Krul, Elliot, Janmaat, Coloccini, Mbemba, Lascelles, Williamson, Mbabu, Colback, Anita, Tiote, Wijnaldum, Sissoko, Thauvin, De Jong, Gouffran, Marveaux, Mitrovic, Perez, Toney.
