December begins with a game at the Sports Direct Arena, which was due to be played on Saturday, 1st December, but will now take place on Monday, 3rd December, with an 8pm kick-off.

A week later - on 10th December - it is another Monday night fixture for Alan Pardew's side, this time away at Fulham, kicking off again at 8pm. That match was originally scheduled for Saturday, 8th December

On Saturday, 15th December, Newcastle's home match against Manchester City will now kick-off at 12.45pm, not the original time of 3pm.
