Suspended Newcastle duo Cheick Tiote and Fabricio Coloccini missing for West Ham clash
Newcastle will be without suspended duo Cheick Tiote and Fabricio Coloccini for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with West Ham.
Midfielder Tiote completes his three-match domestic ban after being sent-off during the 1-1 derby draw at Sunderland, while central defender Coloccini starts a similar punishment following his red card at Liverpool last Sunday.
Manager Alan Pardew, who made eight changes for last night's 2-2 Europa League draw with Club Brugge in Belgium, is likely to restore most of his big names with Jonas Gutierrez, Hatem Ben Arfa and Demba Ba rested, but Danny Simpson (shoulder) remains a doubt and James Perch (thigh) is out for up to six weeks.
Squad: Krul, Harper, Elliot, Santon, Ferguson, Tavernier, S. Taylor, Williamson, Bigirimana, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Ben Arfa, Anita, Obertan, Sammy Ameobi, Marveaux, Amalfitano, Abeid, Ba, Cisse, Shola Ameobi, Xisco.
