Cheick Tiote is back in the Newcastle United starting line-up, as expected, for today’s clash with Liverpool at St. James’ Park.
But that’s the only change from the side that beat West Brom 3-1 last week at The Hawthorns.
And Pardew is expected to play again with the 4-3-3 formation, with Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba forming a lethal attacking three up front.
So it would appear that Jonas Gutierrez could again be at left-back, with the midfield three now being Guthrie, Cabaye and Tiote, and Jonas is captain in place of his Argentine team-mate Fabricio Coloccini.
Ryan Taylor is back from his calf injury and is on the bench.
For Liverpool Andy Carroll, Jose Enrique and Craig Bellamy, all former Newcastle players, make the starting line-up.
Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel are the two center-backs, and of course Steven Gerrrad captains the side, and former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson is on the bench.
Craig Bellamy could be the danger man for Liverpool.
