Newcastle United’s predicted starting XI v Nottingham Forest as Eddie Howe makes bold decision

Newcastle United predicted starting XI to face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Newcastle United travel to Nottingham Forest eyeing another three points to take into the two-week international break.
