Confirmed Newcastle team v Brighton – Manquillo and Shelvey start with Carrol and ASM on bench
The Newcastle team v Brighton has just been confirmed.
Newcastle kicking off their sixth Premier League match of the season on Saturday afternoon at 5.30pm.
Steve Bruce hoping to get his first ever Newcastle win at St James Park.
We knew Gayle, Sean Longstaff, Lejeune, Ritchie and Yedlin were all definitely ruled out by injury and here are the players we are all relying on today.
The confirmed Newcastle team v Brighton:
Dubravka, Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Willems, Hayden, Shelvey, Almiron, Joelinton
So just the one change, Javier Manquillo replaces Emil Krafth.
The bigger news maybe, is that Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin (ASM) are fit enough to be named on the bench.
Darlow, Krafth, Fernandez, Ki, Carroll, Saint-Maximin, Muto
