And Ayoze Pérez will provide support for lone frontman Joselu in attack.

Freddie Woodman is named on the bench with Javier Manquillo and Isaac Hayden, while Jonjo Shelvey and Jacob Murphy are also among the substitutes.

Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle complete the list of players available for Benítez to call upon from the sidelines against the Clarets.

Newcastle United (4-4-1-1): Karl Darlow; DeAndre Yedlin, Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett; Christian Atsu, Mohamed Diamé, Mikel Merino, Kenedy; Ayoze Pérez; Joselu.
