Football - Ben Arfa worry for Magpies

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew could be without Hatem Ben Arfa for the Barclays Premier League meeting with Manchester City.


Midfielder Ben Arfa, who made a goalscoring return against Fulham on Monday night after missing four games due to a hamstring problem, is a major doubt after aggravating the injury.

Steven Taylor (hamstring) and Yohan Cabaye (groin surgery) remain on Newcastle's long-term casualty list.
