Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just named his side for our first Premier League game of the season against Spurs this afternoon.
Here’s the team as put out on the Newcastle Twitter account.

This is the team we thought Rafa would start and it’s not a big surprise but it’s also good to see Dwight Gayle fit – let’s hope he can score some goals for us this afternoon – Dwight is going to be a key player for us again this term.
Javier Manquillo in for the injured DeAndre Yedlin and Florian Lejeune will make their debuts for Newcastle this afternoon in what promises to be an excellent game.
Mauricio Pochettino – Spurs excellent young manager
The Newcastle fans seem divided on the outcome this afternoon – let’s hope we can get the win – that would be a terrific start to the season.
If we win this game this afternoon we will celebrate for a week!!
Howay The Lads!!
