Davide Santon has been ruled out of Newcastle United's match against Crystal Palace. Hatem ben Arfa returns to the squad, but Santon has tonsilitis and is unavailable.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will likely deputize at right back again in Mathieu Debuchy's absence, but that devalues the entire Newcastle defence, including goalkeeper, Tim Krul, for their double game-week.

Davide Santon, along with Hatem Ben Arfa, has been ruled out of Newcastle United's clash against the Hull City Tigers with a knock.

Santon had been doing well - at least for fantasy managers - in a midfield role after being switched there when Yohan Cabaye was sold to PSG. He was even taking kicks. Now that role falls to Vurnon Anita.

Davide Santon has emerged as a doubt ahead of Newcastle United's clash with Manchester City after suffering a knock in the FA Cup against Cardiff.

Paul Dummet and Massiado Haidara will be in line to deputize as full backs for Newcastle, who are already missing Mathieu Debuchy through suspension, and Fabricio Coloccini through injury.

Last weekend saw Davide Santon return to the Newcastle United first team at left back.

That was a rare bit of good news for the Magpies who have Massidio Haidara and Mike Williamson injured, and Steven Taylor suspended for another two matches. In their absence, Newcastle have turned to youngster Paul Dummett as cover.

Davide Santon, who missed the end of last season with a hamstring injury, misses today's season opener as he is "short of fitness".

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa have moved over to left back, but he's a center half by nature. It will be interesting to see if he can contain Manchester City new boy Jesus Navas on that flank.
