Steve Bruce makes just two changes from last week’s win against Tottenham. Both of those are forced with Jetro Willems coming in for Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu in for Allan Saint-Maximin. Emil Krafth has passed a late fitness test and retains his place at right-back.
It will be the same 5-4-1 formation that lined up last weekend. We expect a strong performance from the lads as both Miguel Almiron and Joelinton return to the side after they missed out in the Cup tie against Leicester City.
Here is how the visitors will line-up as former-Magpie Daryl Janmaat makes his first appearance in the league for Watford today.
? TODAY'S TEAM ?
Three changes from the West Ham game.

This is a massive opportunity to go into the international break on a high. Let’s pull for the lads today in the hopes they can get the full three points, and make it two wins on the trot in the league.
Howay The Lads!
