At St. James' Park
Emmanuel Riviere makes his first start of the season as Newcastle United entertain Bournemouth in the Barclays Premier League (3pm kick-off).
The French forward has only made two appearances to date this campaign following an injury-hit season but is included in the Magpies' line-up for their clash with the Cherries at St. James' Park.
United are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Rob Elliot behind a back four of Daryl Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Jamaal Lascelles and Paul Dummett.
And they will be tasked with supplying the ammunition for former Monaco forward Riviere, who scored three goals last season.
Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Rob Elliot; Daryl Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett; Jonjo Shelvey (c), Jack Colback; Moussa Sissoko, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ayoze Perez; Emmanuel Riviere
