Kenedy has recovered from his slight knee injury which kept him out of the game at Everton on Wednesday but is fit to start tomorrow against Wolves at home.
Paul Dummett may also be fit to start if he comes through the training today with no ill effects with his hamstring.
Fabian Schar who has been outstanding for Newcastle over the last five games is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card at Goodison Park.
There’s a good question as to whether Rafa will play five at the back against Wolves tomorrow.
Yoshinori Muto – could start tomorrow
We need to win this game, and we expect Rafa will use a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Matt Ritchie is also fit having served his one-match suspension for picking up five yellow cards.
Jonjo Shelvey is fit again, but we think Ki Sung-yueng will keep his starting position in this starting lineup for tomorrow:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Fernandez Dummett
Ritchie Muto Kenedy
Christian Atsu had a good game on Wednesday night and looked lively although he did miss a golden opportunity to win the game at Goodison with two minutes to play.
He may keep his place and stay on the right wing with the exclusion of Ritchie.
Muto needs to start playing, and he is preferred in the number 10 position to Ayoze Perez for the game tomorrow.
