Confirmed Newcastle team v Nottingham Forest – Muto, Kenedy, Joselu, Longstaff all start

5 years ago

The Newcastle team v Nottingham Forest has just been confirmed.

Rafa Benitez hoping to get the first win of the season even if cups may not be the highest priority.

Newcastle of course lost to Forest 3-2 in extra time at the same stage of this competition last season.

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Darlow, Sterry, Schar, Fernandez, Clark, Atsu, Longstaff, Ki, Kenedy, Muto, Joselu

and the Subs:

Elliot, Yedlin, Dummett, Diame, Murphy, Perez, Rondon

Altogether there are six changes from Sunday, Darlow plus five outfield players.

Rafa looks to have kept his three centre-backs, unless Clark ends up playing left-back.

If it is wing-backs, then most likely Kenedy on the left, as well as Sterry on the right.
