Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon?
We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.
Rafa Benitez confirmed on Friday afternoon that as well as Sterry and Lejeune, the trio injured against Watford – Lascelles, Muto and Shelvey, were all but guaranteed to be missing today.
Another massive match today with Bournemouth, as other teams at the bottom have home games where they could well get points.
Rafa Benitez desperate not to spend another international break sitting in the relegation zone.
“Yoshinori Muto and Jonjo Shelvey have not trained.
“Jamaal Lascelles has had a training session…but it will be difficult for him.
“All three could be out.
“The contribution of the three players coming from the bench (against Watford) was key to us getting the three points.
“After an important win everyone is a bit happier and hopefully we can carry on with this feeling.
“You can feel the difference on the training pitch and in the city… the confidence is higher, but it is just one step forward.
“Bournemouth are in a very good position in the table – they are playing well, and playing with confidence.
