Callum Wilson makes his return and Bruno Guimaraes is fit enough to start. Howe has pulled some surprises in other areas of the pitch.
Dan Burn is back at left-back despite both Matt Targett and Jamal Lewis in the squad. Jacob Murphy and Sean Longstaff are preferred over Ryan Fraser and Joelinton.
Fitness concerns may account for some of these changes. Chris Wood is available from the bench after being a doubt. The wait for Allan Saint-Maximin’s return continues.
This is who Marco Silva has selected for Fulham with Aleksandar Mitrovic and Kevin Mbabu getting starts.

Newcastle are desperate for a win but a number of factors play into today’s chances. The sharpness of Wilson after his layoff is of significant importance. The bench has a few options with Elliot Anderson a potential impact substitute.
Howay The Lads!
