St. James' Park
Barclays Premier League
By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor
John Carver has made two changes to his Newcastle United starting line-up for Saturday's Barclays Premier League home fixture against Swansea City.
Riviere, a summer signing from Monaco, has two goals from 23 appearances this term, while Argentine international has featured five times since recovering from testicular cancer earlier this season.
United are expected to line-up in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation against the Swans, utilising a midfield diamond.
Joining Gouffran and Abeid on the bench, there is also a welcome return for Siem de Jong, who hasn't featured since the end of August following a torn thigh muscle and a collapsed lung.
Swansea City (4-1-2-1-2): Lukasz Fabianski; Angel Rangel, Federico Fernandez, Ashley Williams (c), Jordi Amat; Jack Cork; Jonjo Shelvey, Gylfi Sigurdsson; Nathan Dyer; Jefferson Montero, Nelson Oliveira
Substitutes: Gerhard Tremmel, Kyle Bartley, Leon Britton, Ki Sung-Yueng, Matt Grimes, Jay Fulton, Marvin Emnes
Referee: Neil Swarbrick (Lancashire)
