Newcastle United £40m injury doubt v Nottingham Forest as 10 players ruled out - early team news

Newcastle United v Nottingham Forest team news: Five doubts as 10 players ruled out of Premier League clash.

Newcastle United will hope to continue their impressive home form when take on Nottingham Forest this afternoon (kick-off 12:30pm).

Saturday's defeat to Luton Town saw the Magpies suffer their fourth consecutive Premier League away defeat with only the Hatters and Sheffield United picking up fewer points this season.

But at St James' Park, Eddie Howe's side have been pretty unstoppable.

The Magpies have beaten Aston Villa, Brentford, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United. Only Liverpool have prevented United from taking maximum points.

The stark difference between Newcastle's home and away form has put them seventh in the top-flight table but can move one place higher with a win over Forest.

The Reds arrive in the North East under new management. Nuno Espirito Santo succeeded Steve Cooper last week and his first game ended in a 3-2 defeat to AFC Bournemouth.
