Burnley boss Sean Dyche is likely to name the same side that overcame Tottenham on Saturday when they face Newcastle on Tuesday.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady are ready to step in if there are any changes but Dyche may decide to stick with the team that did so well at the weekend. Burnley are still without Aaron Lennon, Jonathan Walters and Steven Defour.

Dyche is taking nothing for granted, though, and is full of praise for Rafa Benitez and the work he has done at St James’ Park.
He said: “They’re in form, they’re doing well. I’ve watched their last games and they have confidence and are a very tough and physical team. It will be a different test and we have to be ready for that.
“I respect Rafa Benitez because he’s struggling through like me trying to get the best out of what he’s got although they did spend a few quid in the last transfer window.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
