Newcastle boss Alan Pardew's has a number of selection problems as his team head into a busy week, with fixtures against Everton and his former club, Saints.

Midfielder Sammy Ameobi will miss the Toffees' visit to St James' Park tomorrow with an ankle problem and will join full-back Davide Santon on the sidelines, as he continues his recovery from the bout of tonsillitis which prevented him from taking part in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

The Italian, however, could return for the weekend trip to St Mary's, although both full-back Mathieu Debuchy (groin) and striker Loic Remy (calf) are likely to sit out both games.

Pardew will also have to sit out tomorrow night's match, as he continues to serve a ban for his headbutt on Hull's David Meyler, but he will be inside St Mary's stadium on Saturday, albeit without access to the touchline.

That's their problem, we should be careful not to pay much heed, as complacency is our enemy.
