Newcastle United confirmed starting XI v Wolves: Sven Botman decision made as one change named

Newcastle United's confirmed starting XI: Eddie Howe has named his team to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Newcastle United's starting XI from Tuesday night's FA Cup fifth round win at Blackburn Rovers features one change.

Eddie Howe's side host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this afternoon looking to secure their first win at St James' Park in 2024.

And Howe has recalled Sven Botman to the starting line-up in place of Jamaal Lascelles. There are three changes from last weekend's 4-1 defeat at Arsenal with Dan Burn, Jacob Murphy and Joe Willock selected ahead of Tino Livramento, Miguel Almrion and Lewis Miley.

Botman was rested for the trip to Blackburn, which saw Newcastle advance into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup 4-3 on penalties after Martin Dubravka denied Sammie Szmodics and Dominic Hyam.
