New ‘leaked’ England line-up v Wales is bad news for Newcastle United, Arsenal & Chelsea stars - gallery

Gareth Southgate is set to make changes to his England starting XI for tonight’s Group B decider (kick-off 7pm) against Wales.

Only a defeat by a four-goal margin would prevent the Three Lions from reaching the last 16 of the World Cup, though a win would guarantee top spot in the group.

Southgate’s side face rivals Wales, who must win to give themselves a chance of making the knockout stage, on the back of an underwhelming goalless draw against the USA.

That has prompted calls for Southgate to freshen things up against Rob Page’s Wales, with a number of players rumoured to have come into contention.

The team news ‘leaks’ are circulating ahead of kick-off, and latest reports hint at disappointing news for players of Newcastle United, Chelsea and others.
