At his Thursday press conference ahead of Swansea on Saturday, John Carver has confirmed that two players will return to the matchday squad.

Jonas Gutierrez will be considered for selection after he and Carver kissed and made up following a training ground argument that saw the player thrown out of the 18 who were chosen for Spurs.

Whilst the Newcastle Head Coach also stated that Siem de Jong would be involved after impressing against Villa for the reserves this week.

Carver has also declared that now is the time to deliver and that ‘actions speak louder than words’.

After 6 defeats in a row and 12 goals conceded and only 2 scored, let’s hope the Head Coach isn’t just giving us more words…

John Carver:

“The time for talking is over and we have to go out on the pitch and deliver. Actions speak louder than words.”

“We need a win. It is so important for everyone and may just lift that bit of gloom that’s over the city at the moment.”

“Siem de Jong will be in the squad and be involved. Some of his play in the under-21s at Aston Villa was excellent.”
