Steve Bruce has announced the starting eleven for today’s final preseason friendly against St-Etienne. The lads will take the pitch the new orange third kits. It looks to be the same 3-5-2 formation as Bruce has used in the past three friendlies.
SUBSTITUTES: Darlow, Sterry, Clark, Dummett, Willems, Ki, M. Longstaff, Murphy, Atsu, Saint-Maximin, Mut?. #NUFC

It’s great to see Martin Dubravka back in goal. We also hope to see Jetro Willems and Allan Saint-Maximin at some point today as well. Willems will not get the start to day as Steve Bruce had intimated earlier. Rolando Aarons will take the left wing-back role to start the game.
Today will also see a return to St James Park for right-back Matthieu Debuchy who is in the team for St-Etienne.
