This is the team Steve Bruce has picked for the Carabao Cup tie at Newport County. It has seven changes from Spurs and six from the win at Morecambe.
This is how we line-up for this evening's Carabao Cup fourth round tie at Rodney Parade.

Allan Saint-Maximin is not involved once again which is a sensible move from Bruce as he should be ready for Burnley on Saturday. Ryan Fraser gets his second Newcastle start.
Joelinton is rested for this one after two straight starts as Andy Carroll gets another chance from the starting eleven. Surprisingly there’s no DeAndre Yedlin or Dan Barlaser so they could be close to moves.
It’s great to see Fabian Schar back for the bench and also the inclusion of youngster Elliot Anderson.
This is who Michael Flynn has selected for the hosts.

Newcastle have been afforded a comfortable path through this competition. That continues today at the Rodney Parade. The Magpies must take advantage of another generous draw and get by the Exiles.
Hopefully, this is the team that will do just that for a spot in the quarterfinals. A defeat would be a crippling blow at this stage and against this level of opponent. So the lads need to get an early lead and not give Newport any chance of a monumental upset.
Howay The Lads!
