The Newcastle team v Cardiff has just been announced.

Rafa Benitez makes five changes to the team that beat Preston 4-1.

The United boss had already indicated a number of players would be rested/make sure they’d be ok for Barnsley in front of the home crowd next Sunday.

In their place come Yedlin, Mbemba, Colback, Diame and Murphy.

Keeper Rob Elliot has been named as Captain.
