The forgotten man of St James' Park is back! Newcastle United are set to field Hatem Ben Arfa at Darlington for the first time since his horror injury last October when he sustained a double leg break at Manchester City following a shocking tackle from Nigel De Jong. John Carver: “There is no reason why Hatem cannot play at Darlington. “He has looked good in training tand has joined in all of the sessions.” Alan Pardew: “He can make a lot of impact here this season. “It is not just about Hatem of course – there are a lot of good players here. “In fact, we have a lot of options in each position and that’s what any manager wants. “It creates competition for places having Hatem back. “The greater difficulty I have in selecting my team the better. “It is a selection problem, but it is a problem I want. “It is a very nice problem to have.”
