Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will be out for 12 weeks after undergoing surgery to address a hamstring problem. Jamaal Lascelles could return after a muscle problem, Jamal Lewis and Federico Fernandez (both calf) are working towards full fitness but fellow defender Emil Krafth (back) is likely to miss out.

Bournemouth could have defender Marcos Senesi in the squad following his signing from Feyenoord. Experienced goalkeeper Neto could also be involved but fellow recruits defender Ryan Fredericks (calf) and midfielder Joe Rothwell (quad) remain a few weeks away from action.
