Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the game at the Amex Stadium this afternoon against Brighton & Hove Albion in the late kickoff game.
A win in this game will see us equal our points total of last season, which was 44 points.
From last Saturday both Jamaal Lascelles (slight stomach problem) and Miguel Almiron (out for the season with a slight hamstring injury) are not available for this game.
Rafa has shocked us a little bit with Jonjo Shelvey coming in for Ki in central midfielder to partner the in-form Isaac Hayden.
Jonjo Shelvey – given a rare start at Brighton
It’s Jonjo’s first start since last November.

As expected Fernandez comes in for captain Jamaal Lascelles and Atsu comes in for Almiron.
About 13 in 20 fans think we can win this game this afternoon against the 4th bottom side.
After 79 minutes Fulham have just gone ahead via a Ryan Babel goal to lead Cardiff City 1-0 – Brighton fans will be interested in that score.
Howay The Lads!!
