Confirmed Newcastle team v Burton: 3 changes as Mbemba, Atsu, Perez play
The Newcastle team v Burton has just been announced.
Rafa Benitez making 3 changes from the side that won against Wigan.
A number of surprises…
Chancel Mbemba gets a shock recall in place of Grant Hanley, with Rafa seemingly realising that playing two very slow central defenders in Lascelles and Hanley was too big a risk.
Christian Atsu replaces Gouffran on the left, whilst Diame drops back alongside Shelvey in place of Colback, with Perez taking the role behind Gayle.
Isaac Hayden is missing altogether from the squad, as is Jack Colback, presumably injuries…?
On the bench as well we see Mitrovic disappearing but Murphy back involved.
Sammy Ameobi and Massadio Haidara are two coming in from out of he wilderness to grab a place on the bench.
Darlow, Anita, Lascelles, Mbemba, Dummett, Ritchie, Shelvey, Diame, Atsu, Perez, Gayle
Elliot, Gamez, Haidara, Hanley, Gouffran, Ameobi, Murphy
Compare it to this predicted team that went up earlier.
