The Magpies will be hopeful of successive victories after picking up their first win of the season against Burnley last time out.
The bottom three are all currently on ten points and a win could massively boost their chances of survival – a big scoreline could also potentially take them out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
Newcastle will also be relying on Burnley and Norwich City failing to beat their opponents, which appears likely given the Clarets will host West Ham – who most recently beat Chelsea – and the Canaries will take on Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United.
Here are the best of today’s rumours...
