Forward come Forest through midfield, but O'Brien's wide ball towards Toffolo goes astray and Newcastle will take the throw-in.

Newcastle have faced Nottingham Forest more often without losing than they have any other opponent in the Premier League, winning their last of these eight meetings 2-1 in March 1999.

Saint-Maximin's twisting and turning down the left as usual, and Williams eventually drags him down for a Newcastle free-kick.

BLOCKED!!! Saint-Maximin ducks inside before finding Willock in space. He shoots from the edge of the box, but a McKenna block sends it just wide of the post!!

Newcastle look to break up the middle through Guimaraes but in slides ex-Magpie Colback to dispossess him superbly!

1'

Joelinton kicks off for Newcastle, and the home team get their Premier League campaign underway!

14:58

The two sides head out onto the pitch, and St. James' Park is absolutely rocking ahead of kick-off!

14:49

Forest’s side, meanwhile, is littered with summer additions to the squad that won the Championship play-off final. The XI features six new faces, including Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo, whom were both on the losing Huddersfield side in that promotion decider. Record signing Taiwo Awoniyi will have to wait for his first appearance though, with Sam Surridge and Brennan Johnson preferred up front.

14:48

Newcastle start with a line-up almost identical to the one that finished the 2021-22 sesson, albeit with new signing Nick Pope between the sticks. Matt Targett, whose loan from Aston Villa was made permanent, is in at left-back, whilst marquee centre-back Sven Botman is on the bench following his arrival from Lille.

14:48

NOTTINGHAM FOREST (5-3-2): Dean Henderson; Neco Williams, Moussa Niakhate, Scott McKenna, Joe Worrall, Harry Toffolo; Lewis O’Brien, Jack Colback, Jesse Lingard; Brennan Johnson, Sam Surridge.
