The Newcastle team v Derby has just been named.
Gayle, Anita, Colback, Atsu and Aarons were all ruled out due to injury or AFCON commitments.
Rafa makes three changes from QPR on Wednesday.
Mitrovic for Murphy, Diame instead of Perez, plus Hanley in for Lascelles.
The United Captain was struggling on Wednesday and no surprise to see him out of the firing line.
Also interesting to see Rob Elliot promoted to the bench in place of Matz Sels.
Darlow, Yedlin, Hanley, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Gouffran, Diame, Mitrovic
Elliot, Lascelles, Gamez, Lazaar, Ameobi, Perez, Murphy
