The two sides meet this evening and Laudrup feels that the French duo are the Magpies' two most important players.
"There are two key Newcastle players to stop; Remy and the delivery to him which comes from Cabaye," Laudrup is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.
"They are the main threats. [Remy] was one of the players I was interested in last summer. There's no doubt about that.
"He is a player that I like. He has everything. He has speed, individual quality and goals."
Alan Pardew's side have won their last four games in the Premier League.
