Cabaye Ends His Strike

13 September 2013 12:51
Yohan Cabaye could return to the starting line-up after being on 'strike'. He was substitute against Fulham, but he could be "in the right frame of mind" to start on Saturday.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been handed a major boost ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Aston Villa, with loan signing Loic Remy (who made his debut as a substitute in the 1-0 victory over Fulham) ready to start.Central defender Steven Taylor is available after completing his three-match ban, while Cheick Tiote has recovered from a groin injury, but Jonas Gutierrez (knee) and Gabriel Obertan (hamstring) are likely to miss out despite returning to training.Czech Republic striker Libor Kozak could make his Aston Villa debut.The forward joined Villa just before the recent transfer deadline to give manager Paul Lambert more options alongside Christian Benteke up front.Defenders Nathan Baker and Antonio Luna could feature after recent knocks but Charles N'Zogbia remains a long-term absentee with an Achilles injury.Aston Villa (from): Guzan, Steer, Baker, Bennett, Vlaar, Okore, Clark, Luna, Lowton, Bacuna, El Ahmadi, Albrighton, Westwood, Delph, Herd, Sylla, Gardner, Tonev, Bannan, Helenius, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery, Kozak.Newcastle (from): Krul, Elliot, Debuchy, Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Taylor, Good, Santon, Dummett, Tiote, Anita, Cabaye, Marveaux, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Sammy Ameobi, Bigirimana, Gosling, Shola Ameobi, Gouffran, Cisse, Remy, Vuckic.
