The Newcastle team v Norwich has just been named.

Rafa Benitez making only one change, Ayoze Perez in for Mohamed Diame.

As indicated by the United boss, Dwight Gayle is in the squad but has to settle for a place on the bench.

Daryl Murphy finding himself not even named amongst the substitutes.

The writing looks on the wall for Matz Sels, with Rafa picking Elliot on the bench, an indication that he isn’t going to rotate them as back-up keepers.

Jack Colback is surely fortunate to keep his place, although Rafa did indicate pre-match that Isaac Hayden was struggling with an ankle problem and it was how he felt on the day.

Newcastle United:

Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Colback, Shelvey, Gouffran, Perez, Mitrovic

Subs:

Elliot, Hanley, Gamez, Hayden, Atsu, Diame, Gayle
