It’s a home game that we should win on Boxing Day against Stoke City, so it could be a difficult game, that’s just the way Newcastle are, but another win would keep the Magpies flying high – very high.
Cheick Tiote is not available because of a one game suspension, after picking up his 5th yellow card on Saturday, but other than that manager Alan Pardew will have all his squad players available for this game.
Let us know how you think this game will go on Thursday, and what your starting eleven would be.
Note – One of our readers Shaun is a season ticket holder, but is not in Newcastle for the holidays – he has a spare ticket for the Stoke game and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and on twitter at sean4eva09.
