The Newcastle team v Aston Villa has just been named, with United looking to get back on track in the Championship after the surprise defeat to Wolves last weekend.

Rafa Benitez has made 5 changes from Tuesday night and put out the following Newcastle team v Aston Villa.

Newcastle starting 11:

Sels, Yedlin, Clark, Lascelles, Dummett, Gouffran, Hayden, Shelvey, Ritchie, Diame, Gayle


Darlow, Lazaar, Hanley, Tiote, Atsu, Perez, Mitrovic

NUFC are showing the team as a 4-4-1-1 formation, with Diame in behind lone striker Gayle.

Mbemba, Colback and Murphy don’t feature in the matchday 18, though with Rafa’s rotation you are never quite sure whether players are ‘rested’ or dropped.

A surprise appearance sees Tiote return to the bench.

Comparing the starting eleven to the one that started the last Championship match, the 2-0 defeat to Wolves, Yedlin has replaced the suspended Anita, Clark in for Mbemba, and Gouffran replacing Perez.
