The Newcastle team v Tottenham has just been confirmed.
Rafa Benitez hoping to get off to a much-needed positive start.
Last season saw United lose 2-0 on the opening game against Spurs, Shelvey handing them victory with his red card.
This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:
Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Shelvey, Diame, Kenedy, Perez, Joselu
and the Subs:
Darlow, Manquillo, Schar, Ki, Atsu, Muto, Rondon
The folly of not backing Rafa Benitez early in the window showing, as no new faces from the squad who finished last season.
The bench though looking a bit better, with Rondon, Muto, Ki and Schar all featuring.
