Newcastle again has the early afternoon game on Sunday, and it’s out first away game against fellow promoted side Huddersfield Town.
The Terriers got off to an excellent start to the season with a 3-0 win on Saturday at Crystal Palace, and they will be full of confidence against us at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Newcastle will be without Florian Lejeune, Paul Dummett, and the suspended Jonjo Shelvey but it looks like Mikel Merino will start as the playmaker.
Captain Jamaal Lascelles will also start the game, and we’ll see if Ciaran Clark continues at left back in place of Dummett.
DeAndre Yedlin has returned to training after recovering from his hamstring, and he should at least be on the bench on Sunday.
Huddersfield’s excellent young manager David Wagner
It would be a perfect time for Newcastle to get back to our winning ways of last season.
Howay The Lads!!
