Following the 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town, Rafa Benitez could again name the same starting XI for the trip to Leicester City. The likes of Christian Atsu and Jacob Murphy provide possible alternatives to Matt Ritchie on the right wing, and could be considered for recalls due to their pace on the counter-attack. Isaac Hayden provides a different option in the middle of the park for the Magpies. On-loan forward Islam Slimani is ineligible to face his parent club, so Dwight Gayle should again spearhead the Newcastle attack. Joselu could miss out again following an ankle injury, while Rob Elliot and Jesus Gamez are not expected to feature.
Yedlin – Lejeune – Lascelles – Dummett
Ritchie – Shelvey – Diame – Kenedy
