Davide Santon returns to starting eleven for Newcastle’s game with Swansea this afternoon.
And Santon coming in for Danny Guthrie is the only change from the side that beat Liverpool 2-0 last Sunday afternoon.
Ryan Taylor remains on the bench and Davide gets his first start in a few games, and the 21 year-old Italian must have been impressive in training this week.
As expected, 20 year-old James Tavernier is on the bench, and it looks like Jonas Gutierrez will play on the left side of midfield, after playing the last couple of games at left back.
Newcastle will probably play in a 4-3- formation, but could switch to a 4-4-2 formation at any time.
For Swansea, Gateshead-born striker Danny Graham is on the bench and Luke Moore is preferred up front, and former Newcastle winger Wayne Routledge is in the starting line-up.
Steven Calker, the Tottenham and England U21 center-back, who is on loan at Swansea, has been linked with Newcastle and is in the side at center-back.
Neil Taylor, whom Newcastle were close to signing last summer, starts for the Swans at left back, and has had a solid first season in the Premier League.
We have to hope the lads are as good as they were in the last couple of games, and a win is what we are looking for at the Liberty Stadium today.
Howay The Lads!!
