Confirmed: McClaren makes one big change in Newcastle team v Liverpool
The Newcastle team v Liverpool sees one big change.
Siem de Jong replacing Ayoze Perez in the starting line-up.
Playing de Jong and Cisse won’t exactly be the most mobile of combinations, whilst many United fans will be amazed that McClaren drops Perez instead of certain others.
Rumours before the teams were announced, had suggested that Perez AND Wijnaldum could be dropped.
Kevin Mbabu is back on the bench but a fair few Newcastle fans would have had him in the back four.
Newcastle starting 11:
Elliot, Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Dummett, Anita, Colback, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, de Jong, Cisse
On the bench:
Darlow, Mbabu, Sterry, Gouffran, Perez, Thauvin, Mitrovic
Liverpool starting 11:
Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Lucas, Allen, Milner, Ibe, Firmino, Benteke
Bogdan, Toure, Henderson, Sturridge, Lallana, Origi, Randall
