Newcastle United v Aston Villa team news: Eddie Howe forced into two changes

Kieran Trippier captains Newcastle United against Aston Villa as Eddie Howe makes two enforced changes from the win over Everton.

Kieran Trippier has been passed fit to captain Newcastle United against Aston Villa as Jamaal Lascelles misses out through illness.

Eddie Howe makes two changes from the starting XI that beat Everton 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Dan Burn comes in for Lascelles, who has been unwell over the last few days, for his Magpies debut after signing from Brighton and Hove Albion on deadline day.

The Blyth-born defender will partner Fabian Schar with Javier Manquillo replacing Matt Targett at left-back, who is ineligible to face his parent club.

But the big news is Trippier’s inclusion and captaincy after winning his race for fitness despite limping off in stoppage time in midweek.

Eddie Howe revealed on Friday morning he’d make a “late call” over the England right-back, who had picked up a “slight calf injury”.

Bruno Guimaraes, a £33.5million January signing from Lyon, is on the bench as is under-23s midfielder Lucas de Bolle.

Newcastle United XI: Dubravka, Trippier, Schar, Burn, Manquillo, Shelvey, Willock, Joelinton, Fraser, Saint-Maximin, Wood.

Subs: Darlow, Dummett, Krafth, ,Murphy, Almiron, Gayle, Longstaff, Guimaraes, de Bolle.

Aston Villa XI: Martinez, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Digne, McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Ramsey, Buendia, Watkins, Coutinho.

Subs: Olsen, Sanson, Young, Ings, Hause, Bailey, Chukwuemeka, Chrisene, Iroegbunam.
