Newcastle manager has just announced his team to play at Chelsea in the early kick-off game this afternoon.
Shelvey, Hayden, and Yedlin are all left out of the side but we are surprised to see Diame starting for Hayden in central midfield.
We thought Rafa might rest Yedlin after he made quite a few defensive mistakes in the last couple of games and in comes Javier Manquillo at right back.
Mbemba rightly keeps his place at left-back and that looks like 3 changes from Tuesday night with Karl Darlow keeping his place in goal.
Dwight Gayle – gets a start at Chelsea

This is going to be a very tough game for us but we have to think about taking something out of every single game since the heavy Christmas schedule of games is coming up.
By the time we have played at Stoke City on January 1st hopefully, we will still be in mid-table.
Three in five fans think we will lose this game.
Howay The Lads!!
