Remy Cabella will make his first appearance in a Newcastle shirt this afternoon, as the former Montpellier winger is in the starting line up against Malaga CF this afternoon in Germany.
Moussa Sissoko makes his first appearance back after having an extended break after playing for France in the World Cup in Brazil, and young 17 year-old local lad Adam Armstrong again gets a chance in the starting eleven.
Rob Elliot is in goal with Tim Krul on the subs bench, and 20 year-old Ayoze Perez is in the starting line-up after his excellent winning goal last Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa keeps his place at right back with new signing Daryl Janmaat on the bench, and Steven Taylor and Fab Coloccini are again the central defensive partnership with 21 year old Massadio Haidara at left back.
Mehdi Abeid and Colback will play in central midfield once again for the Magpies, and both have performed well in pre-season.
It would be nice to get a fourth win on the trot, but the main thing is for the lads to put in a good performance this afternoon.
