Leicester City (h)
Live on Sky 2.15pm (UK time)

Isaac Hayden is suspended and both Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles still unavailable due to the after affects of COVID.

Ryan Fraser was photographed in training on Friday, having missed the last two games as was Paul Dummett - omitted from the most recent three squads.
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has made two changes to his starting line-up for Sunday’s visit of Leicester City, with Miguel Almirón and Sean Longstaff both set to start for the Magpies.

United kick off 2021 against Brendan Rodgers’ men and, fresh from the 0-0 draw with Premier League champions Liverpool on Wednesday, Bruce has opted to bring forward Almirón and midfielder Longstaff back into the fray in place of Isaac Hayden and Jacob Murphy.

That means that Karl Darlow keeps his place in goal, as the fit-again Martin Dúbravka is again named among the substitutes, with DeAndre Yedlin, Federico Fernández, Fabian Schär, Ciaran Clark and Matt Ritchie resuming their defensive partnerships.

Longstaff comes in to partner his younger brother Matty in the centre of the park, with Almirón and Joelinton either side of the siblings.

And leading goalscorer Callum Wilson will lead the line once more as Newcastle seek to start the year in the best possible fashion.

Murphy is named on the bench along with Jonjo Shelvey and Jeff Hendrick, but fellow midfielder Hayden misses out through suspension.

Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo and Paul Dummett provide defensive reinforcements, while Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle are the more attacking options among the substitutes.

Newcastle United: Karl Darlow; DeAndre Yedlin, Federico Fernández, Fabian Schär, Ciaran Clark, Matt Ritchie; Miguel Almirón, Sean Longstaff, Matty Longstaff, Joelinton; Callum Wilson.

Substitutes: Martin Dúbravka, Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo, Paul Dummett, Jeff Hendrick, Jonjo Shelvey, Jacob Murphy, Andy Carroll, Dwight Gayle.
He's done that "it worked OK last time so I'll do it again", thing that he does.  Two problems: firstly Leicester aren't Liverpool; secondly, last time the result was a nil-nil draw, and we were lucky.  Ho hum.
Ok, we haven’t conceded, but we are not going to score either unless we get forward more. In other words, same old same old , oh and they can go up a gear, unlike us.
