Karl Darlow and Joselu are starting the game this afternoon against Bundesliga side FC Augsburg at St. James’ Park.
Darlow replaces Martin Dubravka, who is not included in today’s squad – and we hope he hasn’t picked up an injury.
Clark and Lascelles are in central defense and Jonjo Shelvey is on the bench with Diame and Hayden starting in central midfield.
Dwight Gayle is not in the squad and could be on his way to West Brom in a loan swap for Salmon Rondon.
Dwight Gayle – not in the squad
Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu are the two wingers.
