Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has made six changes to his starting line-up for Wednesday night's Capital One Cup third round home tie against Leeds (7.45pm kick-off).
However, it is still a strong Magpies' team which will take to the fiel at St. James' Park, with six full internationals and a further four who have represented their respective countries at under-21 level.
For experienced centre-back Williamson, it is his first appearance of the 2013/14 campaign and he will be part of a back four with Mathieu Debuchy, captain Fabricio Coloccini and Dummett, which will protect goalkeeper Tim Krul.
Vurnon Anita and Tiote will anchor the hosts' midfield, with Marveaux and Ameobi on either flank just ahead of them.
And Gouffran will be deployed in the number ten role, just behind Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse.
Leeds United (4-3-3): Paddy Kenny; Sam Byram, Scott Wootton, Jason Pearce, Stephen Warnock; Alex Mowatt, Rodolph Austin, Michael Tonge; Ross McCormack, Matt Smith, Dominic Poleon
Substitutes: Alex Cairns, Aidan White, Michael Brown, Luke Murphy, Paul Green, Noel Hunt, El-Hadj Diouf
Referee: Mike Jones (Cheshire)
