Rafa Benitez has just named his team to play Nottingham Forest tonight in the second round of the League Cup, and as expected there are many changes from the side lost 1-0 at Huddersfield on Saturday.
There are 10 changes to the side, and Chancel Mbemba is the only player who played on Sunday.
Here’s the team as put out on the Newcastle United Twitter account.

Mark Warburton – Nottingham Forest manager
And Achraf Lazaar’s agent leaked the fact that Achraf would play for Newcastle this evening as the club try to move the Moroccan International on to another club.
He’s on the bench so may come on in the second half.

Almost two-thirds of Newcastle fans think we can win this game tonight.
We are hoping we can get our first win of the season tonight.
Howay The Lads!!
