The Magpies host Aston Villa today, hoping to end their terrible run of three consecutive losses in the Premier League.
Villa are playing similarly poorly, and have lost two of their previous three, so the clash could be a serious chance for one of the Premier League stalwarts to get their seasons back on track.
Newcastle are definitely safe, and could jump ahead of Southampton if they pick up a win today. Villa are only four points off the drop zone, and fans will still be looking over their shoulders at the teams below them if they continue their poor run of form.
Loic Remy could return from suspension for Newcastle, while Tiote is also in line to come back into the fold after an injury. Villa have no new injury concerns, although Paul Lambert has confirmed Jores Okore’s rehab is ahead of schedule.
