Pic Special: The Eagles Have Landed

There's no doubt that Newcastle have a big task against Benfica on Thursday night, but Alan Pardew and his players are ready.

On Wednesday morning, they went through their paces ahead of the huge quarter-final second leg tie at St. James' Park.

Massadio Haidara was back with the group after recovering from injury, while Ryan Taylor joined in too as he nears his own return.

Perhaps the biggest news, however, was Hatem Ben Arfa joining in after putting his recent hamstring troubles behind him.
