Nuno Santo's side were on a dreadful run of six Premier League games without a win before fighting back to beat Maurizio Sarri's giants 2-1 in midweek.
Newcastle had a superb November, winning all three of their matches and firing themselves out the relegation zone, but crashed back down to earth with a 3-0 home loss to West Ham.
Here at St James' they've won just two from eight this season and have a number of injury concerns to deal with.
What time is kick-off?
