2 years ago

The Newcastle team v Watford has just been confirmed.

Rafa Benitez told us on Friday that Paul Dummett and Jonjo Shelvey were still ruled out.

In addition, Ki Sung-yueng, Mohamed Diame and Karl Darlow are also unavailable.

Plus, Yoshinori Muto is still away at the Asian Cup with Japan.

Rafa making seven changes:

Coming in are Woodman, Manquillo, Fernandez, Clark, Kenedy, Murphy and Joselu.

Dropping out are Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Schar, Atsu, Perez and Rondon.

A pretty strong side as predictably the manager protects his two indispensable players, Rondon and Dubravka.

This is who Rafa Benitez starts with:

Woodman, Manquillo, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Hayden, Longstaff, Kenedy, Murphy, Joselu

The subs:

Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Schar, Atsu, Perez, Rondon
