Newcastle have just released the team that will play Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon and manager Rafa Benitez will not be in attendance because of discomfort caused by a hernia operation last Monday.
Here’s the team as just issued on the Newcastle United Twitter account.

Jacob Murphy has displaced Atsu on the left wing with the Ghanaian International dropping to the bench.
DeAndre Yedlin, Florian Lejeune, and Jonjo Shelvey are also on the bench since they are all available again.
Gamez comes in – probably at left back – to replace Chancel Mbemba who was filling in for Paul Dummett until he himself was injured playing for DR Congo last week.
Both Dummett and Mbemba have hamstring strains with Paul’s keeping him out until possibly November.

Three in four fans think we can get something out of this game.
