Southampton vs Newcastle team news: Eddie Howe names ...

Eddie Howe has named his Magpies starting XI for tonight's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against the Saints at St Mary's

Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe named his strongest starting line-up available for the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Southampton's St Mary's Stadium.

The Magpies went into the clash after a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace in which Bruno Guimaraes had played despite suffering a nasty whack on the ankle in the 1-0 win over Fulham. And Howe again started with the Brazil star in the centre of hid midfield.

Kieran Trippier skippered the team while Sven Botman and Fabian Schar formed the centre-back pairing and Dan Burn again played at left-back. Sean Longstaff, Joe Willock and Bruno made up the engine room trio.

And it was Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson and Joelinton again in attack with no place for Allan Saint-Maximin in the starting XI. Once again Alexander Isak was on the bench. Despite being linked with a move to EFL outfit Hull, Karl Darlow was on the bench.
