Newcastle are sweating on the fitness of striker Dwight Gayle who has a slight muscular problem.
Rafa Benitez had chosen to deploy Aleksander Mitrovic in attack against Wolfsburg last Wednesday, leaving Gayle on the bench, a move which many thought was a precautionary measure. However, concerns began to mount when his name was omitted from the squad which took on Hellas Verona at St James’ Park in the club’s final pre-season friendly. Following the 2-0 victory, Benitez confirmed Gayle was "not comfortable" after complaining of discomfort in his hamstring: "Dwight is training with the fitness coach, so hopefully he can carry on training this week. If everything is fine, I think he will be OK for Sunday." There will be no old boys’ reunion for DeAndre Yedlin who misses the game through injury while Jamie Sterry is taking longer than initially anticipated to recover from groin surgery.
