QPR v Newcastle: Janmaat's Back

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor

At Loftus Road


Daryl Janmaat returns to the Newcastle United starting line-up for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Queens Park Rangers (3pm kick-off).

The Dutch international missed last weekend's home draw with West Bromwich Albion through suspension, but having served his one game ban comes straight back into the Magpies' side at Loftus Road.

Janmaat replaces fellow countryman Vurnon Anita, and that is the only change to the United ranks from that draw against Albion.

Newcastle are expected to line-up in a 4-3-3 formation again, with goalkeeper Tim Krul behind a back four of Janmaat, captain Fabricio Coloccini, Paul Dummett and Jonas Gutierrez.

Moussa Sissoko, Ryan Taylor and Jack Colback will make up the visitors' midfield trio, while in the final third Ayoze Perez and Remy Cabella will take up roles on the flanks, either side of French forward Emmanuel Riviere.

On an attack-minded substitutes bench, there are places for 11-goal leading scorer Papiss Cisse, Rolando AaronsYoan GouffranSammy AmeobiMehdi Abeid, Anita and teenage goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.
