Competition: UEFA Europa League

Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion, Belgium

Kick-off: Thu 8 Nov, 6pm


Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has shaken off the hamstring injury he picked up in last Sunday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, and is included in the squad to face Club Brugge.

Spanish striker Xisco could also feature for the first time since August 2010. The 26-year-old joined the Magpies from Deportivo La Coruna in 2008, but he's yet to establish himself in the first-team under Alan Pardew. A hat-trick for the Under-21s last month however has earned him a call-up to Newcastle's Europa League squad.

Meanwhile Demba Ba, Hatem Ben Arfa, Jonas Gutierrez, and James Perch are all expected to miss out through injury.
