NEWCASTLE are set to have key midfielder Yohan Cabaye back from injury for Sunday’s home Premier League match against Manchester City – but defender Davide Santon is doubtful.
Manager Alan Pardew today revealed that left-back Santon was a “slight doubt” for the match at St James’s Park.
However, midfielder Cabaye - who missed last weekend’s FA Cup defeat to Cardiff City - is back in training after recovering from an Achilles problem.
“Yohan’s trained today, but Davide hasn’t trained,” said Pardew. “He’s a slight doubt.”
Pardew will without the suspended Mathieu Debuchy and the injured Fabricio Coloccini.
