Confirmed Newcastle team v Chelsea: Diame, Gayle play and Joselu, Shelvey, Yedlin left out

4 years ago

The Newcastle team v Chelsea has just been confirmed.

Rafa Benitez has rung the changes once again.

After making five changes for the West Brom match, the United boss has made three this time.

Manquillo in for Yedlin, Gayle for Joselu, Diame for Hayden.

Manquillo replacing Yedlin isn’t a massive shock as the right-back has struggled recently with his defending, Gayle for Joselu as a lone striker isn’t surprising either.

Playing Diame ahead of Shelvey (and Hayden) is a massive call though!

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Darlow, Manquillo, Clark, Lejeune, Mbemba, Ritchie, Merino, Diame, Murphy, Perez, Gayle

and the Subs:

Elliot, Yedlin, Shelvey, Hayden, Aarons,  Mitrovic, Joselu
