The Newcastle team v Brentford has just been named.

Rafa Benitez looking to get back on the winning trail in the Championship after defeat at Ewood Park 12 days ago, despite dominating against Blackburn.

There were eight changes for Birmingham in the FA Cup and now Rafa reverts back to a 4-2-3-1 after his 3-5-2 last weekend.

Rafa making eight changes once again!

Only Colback, Lascelles and Yedlin remain from the FA Cup match, though Yedlin is at right-back rather than wing-back.

Both fans and Manager will be looking for far more from the likes of Perez, Ritchie and Gouffran than in recent weeks, Dwight Gayle can’t do it all by himself!

Newcastle United:

Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Hayden, Colback, Ritchie, Perez, Gouffran, Gayle


Sels, Hanley, Anita, Lazaar, Sterry, Ameobi, Murphy
