Both Sammy Ameobi and Hatem Ben Arfa are included in the starting line-up at Norwich City tonight.
Sammy Ameobi – gets start at Norwich
Newcastle will line up in a 4-3-3 formation with Ben Arfa, Remy and Sammy Ameobi the front three, and there’s no Yoan Gouffran in the squad – so we assume he’s injured.
And 16 year-old top prospect Adam Armstrong make the bench for Newcastle tonight, with Dan Gosling also one of the subs.
And as expected Mathieu Debuchy comes straight back into the side at right back, after serving a three match suspension for being sent of at West Brom – for which he also received a hefty fine from the club.
For Norwich, former Newcastle center-back Sebastien Bassong captains Norwich and former striker target Ricky Van Wolfswinkel is up front for the Canaries.
