Newcastle United defender Kieran Trippier will not be available for selection this weekend when the Magpies host Fulham on Saturday, as Premier League injuries and suspensions continue to pile up ahead of the festive period. 

Right-back Trippier picked up his fifth booking of the season late on during the 4-1 defeat at Tottenham last weekend - and although he played in the Champions League defeat to AC Milan in midweek, he must now serve a suspension for domestic matches.
