It’s a big boost for everyone as Miguel Almiron and Jonjo Shelvey are back fit. But the best news is the return of Florian Lejeune making his first appearance since his injury last April.
Andy Carroll also gets consecutive starts for the first time this season. It looks like Joelinton will get another run out on the left. However, we are without Jetro Willems and it looks like Paul Dummett will fill in at left-back.
This is the team that Roy Hodgson has picked for our opponents. He gets former Magpie Patrick van Aanholdt back at left-back.

It’s another critical match this afternoon at St James Park. We’ll need to see a better performance than last weekend. Hopefully, we’ll get back on track with a full three points.
Howay The Lads!
