As he prepares to lead his side out at St James's Park for the first time against Aston Villa on Saturday, Geremi said: "I was not expected to be made captain and when the manager gave me the armband in pre-season I thought it was just a test and it wasn't going to be permanent.

"But two days before the kick-off last week he called me in to see if I had the capability to be captain and I said it would not be a problem.

"I am under pressure because it is 50 years since a Newcastle captain lifted a major trophy. But I think we will challenge this season and cause a few surprises."
