Team news: Almirón makes full debut

Written by Tom Easterby

Miguel Almirón will make his full Newcastle United debut in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town (3pm kick-off).

The Paraguayan international will line up at St. James’ Park for the first time since he joined the club from Atlanta United on January transfer deadline day as United take on the Terriers on Tyneside.

That means manager Rafa Benítez has opted to field ten of the 11 players who started in their last league outing - which was the 1-1 draw at Wolves earlier this month - with Christian Atsu making way for Almirón.

Martin Dúbravka continues in goal, with DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Jamaal Lascelles, Florian Lejeune and Matt Ritchie in front of him.

Young midfielder Sean Longstaff partners Isaac Hayden in the engine room once more, and Ayoze Pérez and Almirón will provide support for frontman Salomón Rondón.

That means winger Atsu is named among the substitutes, along with Freddie Woodman, Javier Manquillo and the returning Paul Dummett, who is back from injury.

Ki Sung-yueng, Kenedy and Joselu complete the list of substitutes Benítez may opt to call upon against Jan Siewert’s men.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka; DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Jamaal Lascelles, Florian Lejeune, Matt Ritchie; Sean Longstaff, Isaac Hayden; Ayoze Pérez, Miguel Almirón; Salomón Rondón.

Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Javier Manquillo, Paul Dummett, Ki Sung-yueng, Christian Atsu, Kenedy, Joselu.
