Jonas Gutierrez and Riviere recalled by Newcastle v Swansea
Newcastle v Swansea 3pm
John Carver has recalled Jonas Gutierrez and Emmanuel Riviere to his starting eleven.
Yoan Gouffran and Mehdi Abeid making way.
Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Anita, Ryan Taylor, Colback, Cabella, Gutierrez, Riviere, Perez
As expected Siem de Jong is included for the first time since the start of the season, featuring on this bench:
Woodman, Abeid, Gouffran, Abeid, de Jong, Ameobi, Armstrong
Not sure whether John Carver is making some kind of point here but there isn’t a single defender included amongst the subs.
Possibly theory is that the likes of Ryan Taylor, Jack Colback and Jonas Gutierrez can drop back into full-back but surely they may as well have had one of the young defenders on the bench as a bit of experience.
