Hugo Lloris captained France in all three of their World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Bosnia.
Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko were used more sparingly though, with the latter playing just nine minutes over two matches.
All three return without any injuries though and should be available against Newcastle.
Ivory Coast – Serge Aurier
Serge Aurier recovered from the illness that kept him out against Aston Villa and helped captain Ivory Coast to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.
The full-back scored once and provided three assists and he doesn’t have to quarantine on his return, meaning Aurier will be in terrific form upon his return.
