The Newcastle team v Barnsley has just been named, with United potentially going top tonight (if Norwich pick up less points than NUFC).

Rafa Benitez makes three changes from the team that won 3-1 against Brentford at St James Park on Saturday.

Mohamed Diame returns in place of Ayoze Perez, Hayden is back for Colback, whilst Atsu drops to the bench to accommodate Ritchie.

Newcastle starting 11:

Darlow, Anita, Clark, Lascelles, Dummett, Gouffran, Hayden, Shelvey, Ritchie, Diame, Gayle


Sels, Lazaar, Yedlin, Colback, Atsu, Perez, Mitrovic

Newcastle United official social media are showing the team as a 4-4-1-1 formation.

(Compare this to the predicted choice of Newcastle team v Barnsley we published earlier here)
