After shipping six to Liverpool, Newcastle's backline will be very different at West Ham. While Steven Taylor will likely keep his place, every other position is in flux.

On the positive side, Fabricio Colocinni will return from injury.

However, Mathieu Debuchy is suspended after his red card against Liverpool. On the other flank, Massadio Haidara will miss out with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Sylvain Marveaux remains sidelined with his own injury.

Newcastle United are struggling, and they only have one match this week, so they probably aren't high on fantasy manager's radars. However, a lot of teams have Haidara or Mapou Yanga-M'Biwa as enablers. That now probably needs to change.
