The Newcastle team v QPR has just been named.

As expected, this first eleven is very different to the one named last Saturday.

Gayle, Anita, Atsu and Aarons are all ruled out due to injury or AFCON commitments.

Apart from that though, Rafa once again had options.

The United boss making 9 changes to the Oxford line-up, only Perez and Hayden remain.

Mohamed Diame has to settle for a place on the bench after returning from the African Cup of Nations.

Newcastle United:

Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Gouffran, Perez, Murphy

Subs:

Sels, Hanley, Gamez, Lazaar, Ameobi, Diame, Mitrovic
