The Ivory Coast international is likely to miss at least the trip to Stamford Bridge and Tottenham's visit to St James' Park which follows it with a hamstring problem.

Defender Fabricio Coloccini (knee) and strikers Yoan Gouffran (muscle strain) and Papiss Cisse (back) remain on the casualty list, while fellow frontman Loic Remy serves the second match of his three-game ban.

Provisional squad: Krul, Elliot, Debuchy, Santon, Williamson, Yanga-Mbiwa, S. Taylor, Dummett, Haidara, Anita, Marveaux, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Sammy Ameobi, Bigirimana, Gosling, De Jong, Shola Ameobi, Armstrong.
