Cisse


West Brom will be without striker Peter Odemwingie (knee), while George Throne and Zoltan Gera (both knee ligament) are unavailable. Youssuf Mulumbu is out through suspension.

PFA Young Player of the Year nominee Romelu Lukaku will be competing with Shane Long for a starting berth up front.

Newcastle has a number of injury problems with Tim Krul (shoulder), Davide Santon (hamstring), and Fabricio Coloccini (back) all miss out. Ryan Taylor and Haris Vuckic (knee ligaments) remain on the sidelines, with the former now expected to miss the whole of next season as well.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Newcastle has lost nine of its last 11 away matches, and has only won once on its travels this term.
  • The Magpies have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games against West Brom.
  • Steven Taylor is just three appearances short of 225 in his Newcastle career.
  • James Morrison needs two more goals to reach 25 for West Brom.
  • Striker Romelu Lukaku has already scored 13 times since joining the Baggies, and he will top his best domestic league mark by netting on three more occasions.
  • Baggies boss Steve Clarke spent a spell at St James' Park as an assistant to Ruud Gullit, taking over as caretaker briefly when the Dutchman was sacked.
