Confirmed Newcastle team v Chelsea – Longstaff, Lejeune, Perez, Clark all start
The Newcastle team v Chelsea has just been confirmed.
Rafa Benitez looking for a morale boosting result against the odds.
With Kenedy, Shelvey, Muto, Ki, Diame, Darlow and Dummett unavailable, not a lot of wriggle room with his team selection, especially in the attacking half.
Three changes from the eleven that took on Manchester United 10 days ago.
The injured Diame and Dummett not included, whilst Fabian Schar is left out.
Whilst Sean Longstaff makes his first Premier League start and both Clark and Lejeune come into the Premier League line-up as well.
This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:
Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Longstaff, Hayden, Atsu, Perez, Rondon
Woodman, Manquillo, Sterry, Fernandez, Schar, Murphy, Joselu
