EARLY TEAM NEWS: NEWCASTLE
Just the one change today for Newcastle United from the first game of the season and adjustment is an enforced one, as Javier Manquillo comes in to replace the injured DeAndre Yedlin in defence.
Yedlin misses out after suffering a minor knee injury against his former club Tottenham last week.
Meanwhile, summer recruits Salomon Rondon and Yoshinori Muto came off the bench in the narrow defeat to Tottenham on opening day and the pair will start as substitutes again for Newcastle United again with Joselu and Ayoze Pérez leading the attack.
Fellow new recruits Federico Fernandez and Ki Sung-yueng are on the bench, while Fabian Schar is not in the matchday team.
