Confirmed Newcastle team v Burnley: Diame plays – Merino and Mitrovic not in squad!

4 years ago

The Newcastle team v Burnley has just been confirmed.

Only the one change as Mohamed Diame comes in, with Isaac Hayden dropping to the bench.

So presumably Diame will play alongside Shelvey in the middle of the pitch.

The club have revealed that Mikel Merino is missing from the squad due to having a back injury assessed.

Henri Saivet makes the bench but still no place for Mitrovic in the squad.

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Elliot, Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Manquillo, Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Atsu, Perez, Joselu

and the Subs:

Darlow, Gamez, Clark, Hayden, Saivet, Murphy, Gayle
