CM - Lewis Miley: He was subbed off early in the second half against Liverpool, which I would assume means Eddie Howe has him in mind for this match. This fixture will mean a lot to the youngster, so I would expect him to make the most of the occasion while providing some flair to our midfield.

CM - Bruno Guimaraes: When he's fit, Bruno G is one of the first names on the team-sheet and this game will be no different. The Brazil international will use his physicality well as his time developing this dark art will be put to the greatest use in our most physical match of the season.

CM - Sean Longstaff: Like Miley, this fixture will mean a lot to Longstaff as he is a Newcastle boy down to his core. Longstaff will be pivotal to the style of play Eddie Howe wants to bring to the Stadium of Light as he will provide line-breaking passes while bombing into the opposition's half.
