Joselu has recovered from an ankle injury to earn a place on the Newcastle United bench for Saturday's Premier League clash at Leicester City.
Rafael Benitez has, however, named the same starting XI that beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 last weekend, with Ayoze Perez and Dwight Gayle resuming up front.
Mohamed Diame has shaken off a minor knock, while on-loan striker Islam Slimani is ineligible to play against his parent club.
Hosts Leicester, meanwhile, make two changes to the side that won 2-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion last week.
Wilfred Ndidi, who was sent off against the Seagulls, serves the first game of a two-match suspension, while Shinji Okazaki drops to the bench.
The pair are replaced by Adrien Silva and Fousseni Diabate as the Foxes seek to climb into the top seven of the table.
Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell; Iborra, Silva, Albrighton, Mahrez; Vardy, Diabate
Subs: Jakupovic, Dragovic, Fuchs, Choudhury, Gray, Iheanacho, Okazaki
Newcastle United: Dubravka; Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett; Ritchie, Shelvey, Diame, Kenedy; Perez, Gayle
Subs: Darlow, Clark, Manquillo, Hayden, Merino, Atsu, Joselu
