Confirmed Newcastle team v Huddersfield: Gayle, Merino, Mbemba start – Joselu & Saivet on bench
The Newcastle team v Huddersfield has just been confirmed.
Mikel Merino makes his first start for Newcastle – in our poll this morning, 90% of fans voted form him to come in for Shelvey.
New signing Joselu is on the bench, with also a surprise inclusion of Saivet amongst the subs.
Mohamed Diame also returns from injury to take a place on the bench.
Rafa Bentez was forced into three changes to his team v Spurs, with predictably Lascelles and Mbemba keeping their places after replacing Dummett and Lejeune during that opening game of the season.
This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:
Elliot, Manquillo, Lascelles, Mbemba, Clark, Ritchie, Merino, Hayden, Atsu, Pérez, Gayle
and the Subs:
Darlow, Saivet, Diame, Murphy, Aarons, Mitrovic, Joselu
Compare Rafa’s side to this predicted Newcastle team v Huddersfield.
