Team news: Almirón starts in Spain
Written by Dan King
New signings Miguel Almirón and Antonio Barreca make their first starts for Newcastle United in the Magpies' friendly against CSKA Moscow at the Pinatar Arena (kick-off 11am GMT).
The January signings have each made one substitute appearance in the Premier League but are named in Rafa Benítez's starting XI after a week of training with their new team mates in Spain.
Fit-again duo Mohamed Diamé and Ki Sung-yueng are in midfield, along with Kenedy, while Almirón is set to play behind main striker Salomón Rondón, who spent time in Russia with Rubin Kazan and Zenit Saint Petersburg.
The substitutes are Martin Dúbravka, Freddie Woodman, Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie, Yoshinori Muto, Isaac Hayden, Ayoze Pérez, Federico Fernández, Javier Manquillo, Joselu, Christian Atsu and Sean Longstaff.
