Team news: Joelinton starts as Magpies return to action

There is a familiar look to the Newcastle United side as the Magpies return to Premier League action against Sheffield United at St. James’ Park.

Of the team which saw off Southampton before the campaign was brought to a halt in March, all bar one start against Chris Wilder’s high-flying Blades.

Dropping out is Dwight Gayle, with Joelinton restored to United’s starting XI. Gayle is, however, among those on Steve Bruce’s nine-man bench.

Martin Dúbravka – who took a knock at St. Mary’s – starts between the sticks, with Javier Manquillo, Federico Fernández, Jamaal Lascelles and Danny Rose making up the backline.

Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey pair up in central midfield, with Matt Ritchie starting on one flank, Allan Saint-Maximin on the other and Miguel Almirón providing support to Joelinton.

On the bench, there is also a spot for Andy Carroll, who hasn’t figured for Newcastle since January’s game against Rochdale in the FA Cup.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka, Javier Manquillo, Federico Fernández, Jamaal Lascelles, Danny Rose, Matt Ritchie, Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Miguel Almirón, Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton.

Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Emil Krafth, DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Nabil Bentaleb, Valentino Lazaro, Yoshinori Muto, Dwight Gayle, Andy Carroll.
