We doubt that Rafa Benitez will recall Jonjo Shelvey immediately to the Newcastle starting line up for our game at Swansea City tomorrow after he’s served his three match ban.
It will be tough against Swansea who are a well-drilled and confident team under manager Paul Clement.
Chancel Mbemba is injured after his mid-week game for DR Congo in World Cup qualifying, so he’s not available to fill in for the injured Paul Dummett at left-back.
The good news is that both DeAndre Yedlin and Florian Lejeune are fit again and we expect Florian to return to the middle of Newcastle’s defense with Ciaran Clark moving over to left-back.
And Joselu should start up front and be preferred to Dwight Gayle, who we could see in the second half tomorrow.
According to assistant manager Paco – Dwight’s been training well this week.
Let’s hope Rafa Benitez can be at the game tomorrow
So here’s the side we expect to start tomorrow’s game in south Wales, with Merino and Hayden running Newcastle’s midfield.

What’s your team for tomorrow?
Just over 40% of fans think we can win this game tomorrow.
That’s exactly what we need – all 3 points.
Howay The Lads!!
