Newcastle face a huge Premier League clash as they welcome relegation rivals Norwich to St James’ Park on Tuesday night.

Newcastle vs Norwich: what has been said?
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “I can’t make any promises [about backing in the winter transfer window], but I can promise that the people above me, the owners, will support the team and help me try to achieve what we need. That’s all I can say at the moment.
“It would be foolish of me to make any thoughtless promises or statements. My priority right now is to get the best out of the players we have.
“I don’t think there is any limit to what we can accomplish with the group of players we have here. We need to improve performance, improve results and once the confidence returns to the team I think you will see a different team.
“But attacking and defending is always a delicate balance for any team and we just have to get it right.”
Norwich head coach Dean Smith: “There is a lot more conviction within the squad now that it belongs to the Premier League.
“But we also know the threats to Newcastle, so they will also seek to find that balance.
“It’s always hard to think that you can buy your exit from any position or from any position.
“You bring players into a team and first of all, they have to go and settle in, there is an integration that they have to go into.
“Certainly if they’re not UK-based players or haven’t had a taste of the Premier League before, there’s something new in everything.
“The Premier League as we all know is a very talented league and every club challenges you so it’s very difficult to buy a place in the top six or in the bottom three.”
