Newcastle United have made just one change for today's local derby at home to Sunderland following last weekend's goalless draw at Norwich City.

Meanwhile, new loan signing Luuk de Jong makes the bench for the Magpies, who begin life without Yohan Cabaye today.
Liam Bridcutt makes his debut for Sunderland following a deadline day move from Brighton & Hove Albion, replacing Sebastian Larsson. Fellow new arrival Ignacio Scocco is on the bench.
