Confirmed Newcastle team v Huddersfield – Kenedy, Schar, Perez, Manquillo all start

3 years ago

The Newcastle team v Huddersfield has just been confirmed.

Rafa Benitez looking to pick up his first win this month after a draw at Everton and two defeats.

That followed three November wins for the Magpies.

Ritchie, Fernandez, Yedlin all drop out of the team.

Kenedy, Schar, Manquillo all come in.

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Dubravka, Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Clark, Kenedy, Ki, Diame, Atsu, Perez, Rondon

The subs:

Woodman, Murphy, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Muto, Joselu

Compare with the fans choice here.

Rafa predictably goes with a three/five man defence which has worked well against Everton and Burnley in the last two away games.

This time it appears to be Schar, Lascelles and Clark as the three centre-backs, with Kenedy and Manquillo wing-backs.

A surprise maybe to see Matt Ritchie on the bench, Christian Atsu keeping his place though.
