Howe makes some changes after the quick turnaround with Jamaal Lascelles, Sean Longstaff and Jacob Murphy getting rare starts. Joe Willock also returns to the starting XI as Jonjo Shelvey takes some well-deserved rest.
Fabian Schar gives way to Lascelles, who takes over the captain’s armband on his return. Surprisingly, the other changes are immediate as either Saint-Maximin or Joelinton take the lead from Chris Wood with Murphy in place of Almiron.
Here’s who Dean Smith has named for Norwich.

Newcastle have a chance to move into the top ten with a win today. It will be tough as Norwich are fighting for survival and simply must win for any hope of safety.
The guys should be full of confidence after three straight wins and will be determined to put on a performance for the traveling fans.
It’s a huge opportunity for Lascelles, Longstaff and Murphy to claim before some very tough matches to close out this campaign.
Good job guys !
