Has started every game at centre-back since the restart.
Was unavailable against his parent club Tottenham but should return to the starting XI.
Has been given more opportunities in midfield since injuries to Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden.
Has been a regular starter since the season resumed. Poses a threat from set-plays.
Started in a wing-back role against Tottenham but could be moved into a more advanced position if Newcastle revert to a back four.
Has started the last two games on the bench but may be recalled on the flank due to Allan Saint-Maximin's calf issue.
Covered a lot of ground against Tottenham but will be hoping to make more of an impact against Brighton.
