Newcastle’s two new signings Jonas Gutierrez and Danny Guthrie will make their home debut for tonight’s visit of Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven.
And as expected Habib Beye, Newcastle’s player of the season in his first season on Tyneside, makes his first appearance of the pre-season, after recovering from an Achilles heel injury.
Nicky Butt returns to captain the side, in the absence of Michael Owen, who we hope will be available for Saturday’s game against Valencia.
Steven Taylor and Claudio Cacapa start in the center of defense with bey and Enrique the full backs.
Smith andÂ N’Zogbia are rested and it looks a bit of an odd team, and we suppose that Duff and Milner will play up front.
It could be that boy Jonas Guttierrez could play in attack too.
