Loic Remy makes his full Newcastle United debut at Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League (3pm kick-off).
The on-loan striker's inclusion is one of two changes by Magpies' manager Alan Pardew from their victory over Fulham last time out, with Yohan Cabaye also stepping up into the starting line-up at Villa Park.
As well as the personnel, there is also a change in formation for United, who will go 4-3-3 as they look to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to four matches.
On the bench there is a place for Steven Taylor, who returns having served a three-game ban, and he is joined by Marveaux, Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, fit-again Cheick Tiote, Sammy Ameobi and Yoan Gouffran.
Aston Villa (4-3-3): Brad Guzan; Matthew Lowton, Ron Vlaar (c), Jores Okore, Antonio Luna; Karim El Ahmadi, Ashley Westwood, Fabian Delph; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Christian Benteke, Andreas Weimann
Substitutes: Jed Steer, Ciaran Clark, Yacouba Sylla, Aleksandar Tonev, Leandro Bacuna, Nicklas Helenius, Libor Kozak
Referee: Mike Dean (The Wirral)
