So Manquillo gets a surprise recall to the side at left-back in place of Chancel Mbemba who is not on the bench and could be injured.
And Jonjo comes into the starting lineup in place of Isaac Hayden who is on the bench, so it’s the first time we have seen Shelvey and Merino start a game in central midfield.
And Joselu continues to start the game up front with Dwight Gayle on the bench; Aleksandar Mitrovic didn’t make it on the bench for today’s game.

About a third of the Newcastle fans think we can win this tough game this afternoon.
