Team news: United unchanged
Written by Rory Mitchinson
Rafa Benítez has named an unchanged team for the first time since October as Newcastle United take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday lunchtime.
The Magpies’ boss continues with three centre halves and two wing backs for his side’s trip to Wembley, with DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Jamaal Lascelles, Florian Lejeune and Matt Ritchie making up the rearguard, from right to left.
On the bench, there is a place for new loan signing Antonio Barreca. The Italian linked up with the Magpies on Thursday, joining from Ligue 1 outfit Monaco until the end of the season.
