Steve McClaren will face the media this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s game at Manchester City.
Newcastle United are still looking for their first Premier League win of the season.
And summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic has vowed to stay calm after returning from a three-game suspension last weekend.
McClaren is likely to be without midfielder Jack Colback because of the injury he suffered in the 2-2 against Chelsea, but he could recall fit-again Cheick Tiote.
Meanwhile, the days of Florian Thauvin turning up to home games in a tuxedo look numbered.
McClaren said he didn’t find Thauvin’s attire, which angered club legend Alan Shearer, funny earlier this month.
