Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is hopeful that he will not have to deal with any fresh injuries when his players return from international duty.
Yohan Cabaye, Loic Remy, Tim Krul and Papiss Cisse are among those that have departed from the North-East outfit for their respective nations this week.
"All your players disappear and you hope they all have great international games and come back fit," Pardew told the club's official website.
"We have two great games in front of us - two home games - and St James' Park will be buzzing."
The Magpies will take on Norwich City in the Premier League on November 23.
