Newcastle line up with:
Janmaat, Williamson, Lascelles, Mbemba,
Thauvin, Sissoko, Obertan,
Those missing from the team who started on Saturday are Coloccini, Cisse, Perez, Colback and Haidara – though Perez and the Captain are named as subs.

Then Vurnon Anita and Georginio Wijnaldum as the deeper midfield pair.
Whilst at the back, Mbemba appears to be playing at left-back with no natural options available in the absence of the injured Haidara and Dummett.
