Newcastle predicted the line-up against Watford


The embarrassment over Newcastle United’s FA Cup exit to League One Cambridge United still lingers in the north-east when the Magpies host Watford in a Premier League relegation with six points.

Victory for Newcastle over the Hornets could lift Eddie Howe’s team out of the relegation zone depending on results elsewhere, even if they have only managed one victory all season.

Striker Chris Wood has arrived for £ 20m from relegation-rival Burnley this week to add the conquest of Atletico Madrid and England international Kieran Trippier.

New Zealand’s national team players can make their debut this weekend, and here’s how Newcastle can line up.
