After Hatem Ben Arfa, Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye were all rested for Newcastle's 2-0 win over Leeds United int he Capital One Cup, all three are in line to make their return for the Toon on Monday against Everton.

Loan signing Loic Remy has proved himself to be invaluable for Newcastle this season, with two goals and an assist in three appearances this season.

Similarly, fellow Frenchman Hatem Ben Arfa has two goals to his name in the Premier League, scoring against Aston Villa and Fulham so far.

Equally important for Newcastle will be the return of Yohan Cabaye, who was out of contention for the first few games this season after refusing to play for the club. The midfielder was the subject of a bid from Arsenal in the summer transfer window, and went on strike to try to force a move away from the North-East.

Newcastle are on a good run of form, with just one loss in their last six games - coming at home against Hull.

Everton are in a similarly good run of form, but were beaten on Wednesday against Fulham. The 3-2 win over West Ham at the weekend will have boosted the Baggies' confidence, and a win against Newcastle on Monday would move the Baggies up into the top six.

Left-back Leighton Baines and Belgian loan signing Romelu Lukaku have been the difference for Everton in their opening fixtures, with a pair of free kicks from Baines and a headed winner from Lukaku enough to down West Ham last weekend.

Newcastle will hope the return of their key Frenchmen will be enough to topple Everton on Monday.
