Newcastle United are about to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Eddie Howe has named an unchanged side to the one that hammered Chelsea at the weekend.

That means Lewis Miley starts in the Champions League at just 17 years old, a monumental achievement for the academy graduate.

Newcastle have once again struggled to put out a decent bench

Unsurprisingly the bench leaves a lot to be desired with Martin Dubravka, Loris Karius, Paul Dummett and Lewis Hall the only players with any first-team experience of note.

We nailed it ... but how could we not?

Ben Parkinson and Michael Ndiweni have tasted senior football as late substitutes but 19-year-old James Huntley is getting his first taste tonight as he takes his place on the bench in Paris.

This starting XI did not look like a weakened team by any stretch on Saturday and are more than capable of taking the game to PSG tonight.

It's going to be a tough match

It's going to be a tricky game, no doubt, and a defeat would see our Champions League dream come to an end for this season, a draw would just about keep us in it and a win could give the Magpies a chance of topping the table.

The nerves are absolutely kicking in now.

HOWAY THE LADS!
