Pic Special: Sissoko Gunning For Arsenal

Moussa Sissoko gave Alan Pardew a fitness boost by returning to training on Thursday, and the midfielder could now come into contention for Monday night's game at Arsenal.

The Frenchman, sidelined since the end of last month with a hamstring injury, was joined on the training pitch by Gabriel Obertan, who has also been out of action in recent weeks.

However, neither Papiss Cisse and Luuk de Jong were able to take part in the session after limping out of last weekend's loss to Swansea while Hatem Ben Arfa wasn't fit enough to join in, although he was at the Magpies' Benton training ground for treatment.
