Team news: Lazaro lines up against Liverpool
Valentino Lazaro will make his first start at St. James’ Park as Newcastle United bring the curtain down on the 2019/20 campaign with the visit of Liverpool on Sunday (4pm kick-off).
The on-loan Inter Milan winger will line up against the champions, replacing Emil Krafth in the side as Steve Bruce’s men look to end the season on a high.
Austrian wideman Lazaro’s inclusion is the only change from the team which drew 0-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night.
That means Martin Dúbravka maintains his ever-present record between the posts, with Javier Manquillo, Federico Fernández, Danny Rose and Matt Ritchie in front of him, shielded by a midfield partnership of Jonjo Shelvey and Nabil Bentaleb.
Karl Darlow, DeAndre Yedlin and Yoshinori Muto are also on the bench, with youngsters Kelland Watts and Jack Young completing the list of replacements available for Newcastle’s final outing of this long season.
