Newcastle’s deep block worked wonders against Arsenal in the opening 45 minutes at the Emirates Stadium, but the quality of the hosts’ attacking line came to the fore in the second period to extend the Magpies’ woeful winless run.
Bukayo Saka combined neatly with Nuno Tavares to fire home the opener before being forced off injured, but his replacement – Gabriel Martinelli – took all of 90 seconds to latch onto Takehiro Tomiyasu‘s pass and fire home expertly past Martin Dubravka.
Howe was never expected to end his side’s woeful streak in North London, but fixtures against Norwich and fellow relegation candidates Burnley represent prime opportunities for the Magpies to lift themselves off the foot of the table and claim a long-awaited victory.
Now boasting a mere six points from a possible 39 in the 2021-22 season, Newcastle are three points adrift of the 19th-placed Canaries ahead of the midweek round of fixtures, but their superior goal difference will see them usurp their opponents with a win here.
Newcastle have conceded three goals in each of their last three at St James’ Park, though – shipping a league-high 16 on home soil so far – and Norwich are certainly demonstrating more resilience under their new leader.
Newcastle have lost both Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie to suspension ahead of this contest, so Howe will be forced into at least two defensive changes this week.
Jamal Lewis and Ciaran Clark will likely benefit from the duo’s absence to start on Tuesday, while Jacob Murphy and Javier Manquillo could certainly challenge Emil Krafth for a spot on the right.
Isaac Hayden and Miguel Almiron are ready to provide some much-needed fresh legs in the middle, with Joe Willock potentially dropping out of the XI.
Meanwhile, Norwich were dealt a major injury blow with Mathias Normann last time out, as the midfielder left the pitch after just 35 minutes of the Wolves draw with a suspected recurrence of a pelvic problem.
Normann will not be passed fit for this contest due to the quick turnaround, so Lukas Rupp could earn a start here.

Sam Byram and Christoph Zimmermann are likely to remain out for the visitors, with Smith reluctant to make too many changes amid his side’s impressive streak.
