Ben Arfa Misses Out But Cisse Makes Starting Line-Up v Stoke
As expected Alan Pardew has wheeled out his big guns for this vital Premier League match, despite the understudies doing so well in Moscow.
The dead leg Ben Arfa picked up in that match with Anzhi rules him out today but it sounds hopeful of him making the second leg against the Russians.
Newcastle United line-up against Stoke with the following starting eleven;
Elliot, Debuchy, Mapou, Taylor, Santon, Cabaye, Tiote, Sissoko, Gouffran, Jonas, Cisse
While on the bench we have;
Harper, Haidara, Perch, Anita, Obertan, Marveaux, Campbell
Shola ruled out, so it could be interesting if United need to make a change up front with young Adam Campbell on the bench.
