Some rare god news this week is that Moussa Sissoko will return to the starting line-up tomorrow at Leicester City, and Siem de Jong played the full 90 minutes for the U21 side at Derby County on Tuesday night, but he will not start tomorrow.
We want to see this from Moussa Sissoko tomorrow
It looks like Paul Dummett could also be back and he’s been in training over the last two weeks and we would expect him to come in at left back tomorrow at the King Power Stadium.
Newcastle played quite well in the first half last week but in the second half we were hopeless, and Swansea were the much better side and deserved to win, but Siem came on for the last 15 minutes and showed his complete class and also got a late goal – his very first for the club.
This could be the team that John Carver starts tomorrow afternoon, to try to break out seven game losing streak – the longest at Newcastle since 1978.

What team would you start tomorrow?
Ryan Taylor could potentially start on the right wing for Remy Cabella, because of his threat from free kicks and corners, but we expect Sissoko and Colback to be the two central midfielders – and they have been first choice this season.
We are assuming that Rolando Aarons is still not fit to be on the bench, and we’d be very surprised if he is fit enough to play again this season.
It’s very important that Newcastle break our terrible losing run, but the majority of our readers don’t think we can do that tomorrow.
