Confirmed Newcastle team v Bournemouth – Fernandez, Willems, Shelvey all start
The Newcastle team v Bournemouth has just been confirmed.
Newcastle kicking off their twelfth Premier League match of the season on Saturday afternoon at 3pm.
Steve Bruce hoping to win consecutive games for the first time with Newcastle.
Ahead of the match, the Newcastle United head coach said that as well as the suspended Sean Longstaff, three other players definitely missed due to injury.
Long-term injured Florian Lejeune and Matt Ritchie, plus Fabian Schar.
The confirmed Newcastle team v Bournemouth:
Dubravka, Yedlin, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Willems, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Joelinton
As you can see, the same 11 players who started at West Ham in the 3-2 win.
Darlow, Krafth, Dummett, Matty Longstaff, Atsu, Gayle, Carroll
On the bench it is the same, Steve Bruce retaining the same seven subs.
By my reckoning, that means the four fit first team squad players to be left out of the matchday 18 are: Elliot, Manquillo, Muto and Ki.
