Two changes for Newcastle United against Burnley as key man returns to the starting XI
Eddie Howe has named his Newcastle United starting XI for the final time this season - with Burnley the opponents.
Kieran Trippier starts for Newcastle United at Burnley in their final game of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
The England international makes his first start since scoring a free-kick during the 1-0 win over Aston Villa in February.
Trippier fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot in the same game and only recently returned to the matchday squad against Manchester City and Arsenal.
The 31-year-old played the remaining half-hour at Man City, though was an unused sub when the Gunners visited St James’ Park on Monday.
Jamaal Lascelles is the second change by Eddie Howe with Fabian Schar, on the bench, following concussion protocols this week after his knock against Arsenal.
Matt Targett plays in what could be his final game in a black and white shirt following his loan spell from Aston Villa.
Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton and Sean Longstaff form a three-man midfield. Callum Wilson leads the attack with Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin either side.
Chris Wood is on the bench against his former club but Ryan Fraser misses out with a hamstring issue.
