After what seems like an eternity from their last Premier League outing against Everton, Newcastle return to league action tomorrow with a huge game at Carrow Road against Norwich City. Chris Hughton’s side are riding high in the league after going ten games unbeaten, while the Geordies look for their first away win of the season.

The extended break has allowed Alan Pardew to finalise the signing of Mathieu Debuchy, who is expected to make his debut from the start at right-back, while Danny Simpson misses out with a broken toe. The former Manchester United defender isn’t expected to regain his place in the team, meaning Debuchy could have prematurely ended Simpson’s first-team outings in black and white.

A huge boost for Newcastle comes in the shape of Yohan Cabaye, who has been training all week and will be in the squad, although isn’t expected to start. Steven Taylor is in a similar position, although isn’t expected to be involved tomorrow.

The main news though surrounds Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini, who is reported to have told club officials he wants to leave and return home to Argentina. San Lorenzo – Coloccini’s hometown club – have been speculating that they will do all they can to bring the 30-year old back to South America. The speculation could mean Coloccini is left out of the squad to face the Canaries, although the decision will be made today.

Shola Ameobi is suspended after seeing red against Brighton in the FA Cup, while injury keeps out a number of first teamers. Dan Gosling, Ryan Taylor, Haris Vuckic, Hatem Ben Arfa, Danny Simpson will all miss out, but James Perch and Jonas Gutierrez are both available. Cheick Tiote is on international duty with Ivory Coast.

As for Hughton’s side, goalkeeper John Ruddy is missing through injury along with Andrew Surman, Steven Whittaker and Steve Morison. Fitness tests await Jonny Howson and Grant Holt but both should play some part as Norwich look to climb closer to the top half of the table.

Norwich have lost their last three Premier League games, although all have been tight affairs. Not least the clash with Manchester City, who needed all their talent to escape Carrow Road with a 4-3 win. Only City, Liverpool and Chelsea have inflicted home defeats on Hughton’s side, meaning the likelihood of Newcastle picking up their first away win of the season may not be too fancied by the bookies.

If they do win, Newcastle could go above Sunderland in the table and drag themselves further away from the drop zone, while defeat will mean Newcastle could go down another place, with Aston Villa meeting Southampton in a clash where either side could leapfrog the Geordies.
