Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just named his team which he hopes will break our two-game losing streak at Watford this afternoon.
There are two changes with Manquillo coming in for DeAndre Yedlin at right back and Murphy coming in for Matt Ritchie on the right wing.
Both Matt Ritchie and DeAndre Yedlin are on the bench today.
Jacob Murphy – get a start today

Newcastle have not played well in the last two games, and it’s not a lack of effort but more a lack of intensity in our play.
If we can fix that today we have a decent chance of winning this game.
Good news today with Rafa Benitez nominated as Premier League Manager of the Year, and he’s one of six candidates named.
The other candidates are Chris Hughton of Brighton, Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool, Burnley’s Sean Dyche and Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson.
Let’s hope we can get a win today at Vicarage Road – that’s what we really need to ensure we can finish 10th in the league.
Almost half our fans think we can win this game.
Howay The Lads!!
