JOHN Carver has recalled Emmanuel Riviere and Steven Taylor to the starting XI for his first game in temporary charge of Newcastle United.

Striker Riviere comes in for the suspended Papiss Demba Cisse, while Steven Taylor replaces Mike Williamson in defence against Burnley at St James’s Park (3pm kick-off).

Attacking midfielder Remy Cabella and forward Adam Armstrong are among the substitutes.

Assistant manager Carver was put in caretaker charge after United manager Alan Pardew was given permission to talk to Crystal Palace about their managerial vacancy.

Newcastle are ninth in the Premier League table, while Burnley are second from bottom.
