With the Tyne-Wear derby less than 48 hours away, Newcastle United have been strengthened by the return of three key players.
Captain Fabricio Coloccini is back in contention following a hamstring injury, while defender Steven Taylor and goalkeeper Tim Krul are also available for selection having recovered from respective calf and elbow complaints.
"We are in great shape, we have some big-name players back in and around the group and I think that's given us all a bit of a boost," he explained.
"It is a big week, not only have we got Sunderland but we've also got a big Europa League game and then West Brom after that."
