Jetro Willems got the Magpies’ only goal of the game last weekend when they were beaten 3-1 at Anfield – and the left-back is expected to be joined in the matchday 18 by fellow summer signings Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin.

The game comes around too soon for youngster Sean Longstaff, though. While Fabian Schar is FIT.

Our writers Liam Kennedy and Miles Starforth are at St James’s Park this afternoon – stay tuned for LIVE match build up, action and reaction on Tyneside.
