The Newcastle United Blog | Almiron, Guimaraes, Longstaff and Lascelles start at Chelsea

This is the team that Eddie Howe has named for this afternoon’s game at Chelsea. He has four changes since winning at Southampton.

Howe made significant changes to his squad with Miguel Almiron, Jamaal Lascelles, Sean Longstaff and Javier Manquillo coming in from the cold. He also appears to have changed the formation to a back-five.

Allan Saint-Maximin is in the squad while the midfield trio of Joelinton, Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey are out. Ryan Fraser and Emil Krafth fall to the bench.

This is what Thomas Tuchel selected for Les Bleus.

It will be difficult, but the guys have a lot of momentum. A result is certainly a possibility. We’ll see if Howe got the tactic and team selection right today.

There are places up for grabs and some of the Magpies from today have been waiting a long time for this opportunity. Hope they get up and take it.

Good job guys !
