Here is the starting lineup Steve Bruce has selected for the FA Cup replay against Oxford. It has five changes from the draw against Norwich.

This is a strong team Bruce has put out as he continues to take this competition seriously.
It looks like he’s going with a 3-5-2 with Joelinton and Miguel Almiron up top and a three-man midfield of Nabil Bentaleb and the Longstaff brothers.
Allan Saint-Maximin only makes the substitutes bench but is there if needed for a second-half push which we hope will not be the case.
It’s good to see that Tom Allan has made the bench. Hopefully, the way this match unfolds allows him to get his second appearance for Newcastle.
This is the team that Oxford manager Karl Robinson has picked.

The lads really need to show a reaction this evening. This is a chance to advance to the fifth round against West Brom and put the last few performances behind us.
Howay The Lads!
