Alan Pardew has made two changes to his Newcastle United starting line-up for Sunday's final game of the Barclays Premier League season, away at Liverpool (3pm kick-off).
Following last weekend's 3-0 home victory over Cardiff City, defenders Massadio Haidara and Steven Taylor return to the Magpies' team, replacing Paul Dummett and injured 14-goal leading scorer Loic Remy.
It means a slight reshuffle in formation for United, who are expected to start in a 4-4-1-1 formation, with goalkeeper Tim Krul behind a back four of Taylor, Mike Williamson, captain Fabricio Coloccini and Haidara.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Simon Mignolet; Glen Johnson, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger, Jon Flanagan; Jordan Henderson, Steven Gerrard (c), Joe Allen; Raheem Sterling, Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge
Substitutes: Brad Jones, Kolo Toure, Mamadou Sakho, Aly Cissokho, Lucas, Philippe Coutinho, Iago Aspas
Referee: Phil Dowd (Staffordshire)
