Rafa Benitez makes two changes in confirmed Newcastle team v Leicester – Anita starts
The Newcastle team v Leicester sees Rafa Benitez make two changes.
Vurnon Anita comes into midfield with Colback moving and covering for Dummett at left-back, whilst Mitrovic replaces Riviere.
Newcastle starting 11
Elliot, Janmaat, Lascelles, Taylor, Colback, Sissoko, Anita, Shelvey, Perez, Wijnaldum, Mitrovic
On the bench
Darlow, Sterry, Saivet, Townsend, de Jong, Riviere, Doumbia
Rumours of Mbemba and Mbabu both being available to come back in, proving wide of the mark.
Andros Townsend does come in but only on the bench, presumably not fit to start.
Looking at the other options on the bench, hard to make an overwhelming case for any of them deserving to start ahead of the others.
Interesting to see how Anita gets on alongside Jonjo Shelvey in the middle.
