Much anticipation in advance of Steve McClaren’s Newcastle team v Swansea.

Would the Head Coach keep the same eleven that showed a lot of positives and the odd weakness against Southampton, or would he take the plunge and shake things up?

Despite worries about the defending and hopes from some fans that the lies of Aarons and Mitrovic might be included, Steve McClaren has gone for the same team that faced Southampton.

The only change to the 18 seeing Mike Williamson replace Siem de Jong on the bench.

Newcastle starting 11 v Swansea:

Krul, Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Haidara, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Obertan, Cisse

On the bench:

Darlow, Taylor, Tiote, Aarons, Perez, Williamson, Mitrovic
