New boy Gael Bigirimana gets a start tonight against Monaco, as the 18 year-old midfielder gets a big chance to show what he can do in a Newcastle shirt against the French second division side.
The 18-year-old was signed from Coventry City for around £1M about a week or so ago, but he made his debut for Newcastle when he came on as a sub against Chemnitzer on Friday night in Chemnitz, Germany.
Mehdi Abeid will also be in the middle of the park and it looks like Gael will be given the attacking midfield role tonight.
Alan Pardew has made seven changes to the side that started on Friday night, with Steve Harper, Davide Santon, Danny Simpson and Jonas Gutierrez also starting – and Jonas will be playing left-back tonight.
Romain Amalfitano gets another start as do the two Ameobi brothers and Demba Ba.
Newcastle United (4-4-2): Steve Harper; Davide Santon, Danny Simpson, Mike Williamson, Jonas Gutierrez; Romain Amalfitano, Mehdi Abeid, Gael Bigirimana, Sammy Ameobi; Shola Ameobi, Demba Ba
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, James Tavernier, Ryan Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini, James Perch, Dan Gosling, Cheick Tiote, Sylvain Marveaux, Gabriel Obertan, Haris Vuckic
