Here is the team that Steve Bruce has just announced for tonight’s Carabao Cup tie against Leicester City.

It will be a debut at St James Park for Matty Longstaff as he is in the starting eleven with brother Sean on the bench. Christian Atsu and Jamaal Lascelles also make the bench despite Steve Bruce saying they were suffering a bit during his press conference. Jonjo Shelvey also gets a start in the midfield and has been selected as the captain.
We’ll have to see what the formation will be as there is only one forward selected. We would assume that Matt Ritchie will play on left and maybe Isaac Hayden will play on the right.
This is the team that Brendan Rodgers has selected.
? Team news is in ?
Here's how the Foxes line up for #NewLei ?

It’s a very strong side for Leicester City who are taking this competition very seriously. Ayoze Perez gets the start as he makes his return to St James Park.
Let’s hope the team Steve Bruce has put out can do the job tonight. It will be very tough, no doubt about that.
Howay The Lads!
