Confirmed Newcastle team v Chelsea – 6 changes as Saint-Maximin, Shelvey, Willems all start
The Newcastle team v Chelsea has just been confirmed.
Newcastle kicking off their game at 5.30pm.
NUFC trying to bounce back from 1 point in 4 Premier League games.
A lot of changes from Tuesday night.
The big news is that Allan Saint-Maximin is back in the starting eleven.
Whilst Jonjo Shelvey also returns, with both Longstaff brothers dropped to the bench.
Fingers cross that Steve Bruce isn’t once again taking chances on players and rushing them back from injury too early, especially ASM.
Hopefully we aren’t needing to bring a striker off the bench because there isn’t one…
