Team news: Krafth starts at Carrow Road
Written by Rory Mitchinson
Summer signing Emil Krafth comes in for his Newcastle United debut as the Magpies take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.
The Swede replaces Javier Manquillo on the right of a five-man backline, as head coach Steve Bruce makes two changes to the side who started Sunday’s narrow defeat to Arsenal at St. James’ Park.
Bruce’s other tweak comes in midfield, where Ki Sung-yueng takes the place of Sean Longstaff. The South Korean will line up alongside Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey in the engine room, the latter having been passed fit after suffering a slight injury against the Gunners.
However, there is no place for Allan Saint-Maximin, who has sat out United’s trip to Norfolk with a hamstring problem.
