As had been rumoured, both captain Fabricio Coloccini and Cheick Tiote start against Manchester United in tonight’s match.

Alan Pardew has resisted the temptation to play Papiss Cisse from the start and instead had Shola leading the line with no doubt Haris Vuckic just behind, though Newcastle’s bench has a strong look to it.

The full team is;

Elliot, Perch, Williamson, Coloccini, Tavernier, Obertan, Tiote, Gosling, Marveaux, Vuckic, Shola

With the bench;

Harper, Ferguson, Bigirimana, Anita, Amalfitano, Sammy Ameobi and Cisse

They are up against a strong Manchester United team including Fletcher, Cleverley, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez and Anderson.

At the time of writing you could get 11-2 on Newcastle winning at Old Trafford with BetVictor, compared to 9-2 with Ladbrokes.

If you fancy Newcastle to keep a third clean sheet in a row in a goalless draw and take the match into extra time, then 0-0 would pay 16-1 with BetVictor compared to 8-1 with Coral.

Having a bet on Newcastle is a bit of fun but it will be a lot more fun if you bet and win with BetVictor!
