The 25-year-old will be included among the substitutes as the Magpies make their second visit to the Emirates Stadium in four days.

However, striker Mark Viduka will not travel south with manager Kevin Keegan having decided to give him more time to recover from his calf injury ahead of Sunday's derby clash with former club Middlesbrough.

Midfielder Emre completes his three-match ban while Habib Beye, Abdoulaye Faye, Geremi and Obafemi Martins are away on African Nations Cup duty.
