Alan Pardew is unlikely to bring changes in the lineup after the draw against Vitesse. Tom Beugelsdijk is the only player that is ruled out due to an injury. Goosens, Necid and Summerville should be the front three, while, Immers, Baluta and Meijers could accommodate the midfield region.
Donyell Malen misses out due to an injury for the visitors. Having said that, Ritsu Doan and Konstantinos Mitroglou will be pushing for starts. Sam Lammers and Ryan Thomas will be expected to lead the attack for PSV, with Ihatteren, Hendrix, Rosario and Gakpo likely to fill in midfield.
