Barclays Premier League
By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor
At the Britannia Stadium
Alan Pardew has named an unchanged Barclays Premier League line-up as Newcastle United travel to Stoke City on Monday night (8pm kick-off).
The Magpies came from behind to draw 2-2 against Hull City in top flight action last weekend and Pardew has kept faith with that group of players - despite an extra-time Capital One Cup victory at Crystal Palace sandwiched in between using a slightly changed team.
Emmanuel Riviere continues to lead the line for Pardew's side following a brace at Selhurst Park, while Papiss Cisse, who notched twice in that draw against the Tigers, continues to build up towards full fitness with a substitutes' role.
And that trio will be tasked with supplying the ammunition for summer signing Riviere.
Stoke City (4-2-3-1): Asmir Begovic; Phil Bardsley, Ryan Shawcross (c), Marc Wilson, Marc Muniesa; Glenn Whelan, Steven Nzonzi; Mame Biram Diouf, Charlie Adam, Victor Moses; Peter Crouch
Substitutes: Thomas Sorensen, Erik Pieters, Robert Huth, Stephen Ireland, Marko Arnautovic, Oussama Assaidi, Bojan
Referee: Craig Pawson (South Yorkshire)
