Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUGUST 23 -

Wil­liamson and Dan Gosling are all expected to come in.

New­cas­tle take on Chelsea in the Premier League less than 48 hours af­ter the fi­nal whis­tle in the Greek cap­i­tal so Pardew will rest Yo­han Cabaye, Demba Ba, Che­ick Tiote, Jonas Gu­tier­rez and Fabri­cio Coloc­cini.

Pardew in­sisted: “I won’t make 11 changes, but we have a lot of games com­ing up and it’s im­por­tant that our best play­ers have their en­ergy lev­els up.

“I’m go­ing to put out a team I think can win and that might not be all our big-hit­ters.

“Do­ing that would be im­pos­si­ble.”
