Newcastle take on Chelsea on Sunday and Rafa Benitez would love a win against his former club.
The Spaniard could do with one; with a very tough run of fixtures coming over the next couple of months.
The team need three points to get their season off and running.
In the 0-0 against Cardiff, the Magpies struggled to threaten too much. The visitors managed six shots on target, suggesting a lack of prowess in front of goal.
Benitez should therefore consider throwing Salomon Rondon into the mix against the Blues at St. James’ Park.

Admittedly Rondon didn’t prove himself to be the most clinical striker in the world at West Brom.
That said though, the Venezuelan is a nightmare to defend against and brings others into the game effectively.
Chelsea have looked far from sturdy at the back following Maurizio Sarri’s takeover, as many expected.
David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger are absolutely there for the taking, and a player like Rondon would certainly ruffle their feathers.
The 28-year-old is a handful and would arguably pose the pair more of a threat than Joselu, who is simply too inconsistent.
He may have scored against Tottenham but the Spaniard frustrated against Cardiff, reminding fans of his inconsistency.
There for the taking?
Chelsea are looking good in the final third under Sarri but are definitely vulnerable at the back.
Luiz and Rudiger are both suspect, and a battering ram like Rondon could certainly yield some joy for the Toon Army.
Rafa then has the option of introducing the industrious Yoshinori Muto later in the game to wear the centre-halves down even more.
