Newcastle United will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Swansea City at home in the Premier League.

The Magpies will head into the match against fellow relegation candidates Swansea on the back of a 3-1 victory over Luton Town at St. James’ Park in the third round of the FA Cup.

Rafael Benitez’s side are in good form at the moment and will head into the match against the Swans at St. James’ Park high on confidence.

Ahead of the match, Newcastle have received a major injury boost. Rob Elliot is back in training after recovering from a thigh injury.

The Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper picked up the injury during the festive period, but on Thursday, the 31-year-old was caught on camera training.

Newcastle midfielder Chancel Mbemba also attended the training session on Thursday, and this will surely boost the Magpies’ chances of winning against Swansea.

The 23-year-old DR Congo international recently picked up a knee injury in training and missed the FA Cup tie against Luton.

According to The Sun, Scottish Premiership club Celtic and Belgian side Anderlecht are interested in signing Mbemba in the January transfer window.
