Rafa Benitez has just announced his starting eleven for the match at Wolves in the late kickoff game in the Championship this afternoon and captain Jamaal Lascelles and Jack Colback come back into the side.

It’s good to see Christian Atsu back on the bench today and Aleksandar Mitrovic keeps his place in spite of having a fairly poor game last Saturday against Derby County.
Jack Colback comes in to give Isaac Hayden a rest today.
This is some of what Rafa said yesterday in his press conference:
“When you play away, everybody wants to beat you. But we are ready, top and we are happy – but it’s difficult.”
“It’s important to just concentrate on one game at a time. The other teams will be pushing and pushing.”
“April is crucial because we have seven games, that month will be the key for the final positions.”
About 7 fans in 10 think we can win this game this afternoon.
