Alan Pardew has made three changes to his Newcastle United starting line-up as they travel to Cardiff City in the Barclays Premier League (3pm kick-off).
For centre-back Williamson, it is a first Premier League start of the season - and his 100th start for the Club - and just rewards for an impressive showing as a second-half replacement at Everton on Monday night.
Cabaye also made an impact as a substitute at Goodison Park, with a 35-yard wonder-goal, and comes in to the heart of Newcastle's midfield.
And Senegalese front man Cisse - who netted his first goal of the season ten days ago against Leeds in the Capital One Cup - is recalled up front.
On the substitutes' bench, alongside Yanga-Mbiwa, Anita and Ben Arfa, there are places for Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Sammy Ameobi and Jonas Gutierrez - the latter of who has been out since the opening day of the season with a hamstring injury.
Cardiff City (4-3-3): David Marshall; Kevin Theophile-Catherine, Ben Turner, Steven Caulker (c), Andrew Taylor; Aron Gunnarsson, Gary Medel, Kim Bo-Kyung; Peter Odemwingie, Fraizer Campbell, Peter Whittingham
Substitutes: Joe Lewis, Mark Hudson, Jordon Mutch, Don Cowie, Craig Noone, Nicky Maynard, Craig Bellamy
Referee: Kevin Friend (Leicestershire)
