All eyes on who would be in the Newcastle team v Manchester United.
With fans desperate to see new signings Georginio Wijnaldum, Chancel Mbemba, Florian Thauvin and Alekandar Mitrovic all lining up together, as soon as possible.
Supporters are three quarters of the way there with three of them starting and Thauvin on the bench. Cisse dropped and Mitrovic gets his first Premeir League start.
Problems on the right for Newcastle, with Daryl Janmaat ruled out due to the suspension after his sending off at the Liberty Stadium last weekend.
To add to Steve McClaren’s problems, Moussa Sissoko revealed late Saturday morning that he wouldn’t be available due to the injury that forced him off at Swansea.
Mbemba moves to right-back as expected with Taylor in the middle, whilst Perez is brought in for Sissoko.
So Steve McClaren has came up with the following Newcastle team v Manchester United:
Krul, Mbemba, Taylor, Coloccini, Haidara, Colback, Anita, Obertan, Wijnaldum, Perez, Mitrovic
On the bench:
Darlow, Williamson, Tiote, de Jong, Aarons, Thauvin, Cisse
