Team news from St. James' Park as Newcastle United get set to take on West Ham

The Magpies are back in action against David Moyes' men after the international break (kick-off 12:30pm GMT), with Livramento replacing the injured Sven Botman in the only alteration from the side that were beaten at Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals a fortnight ago.

That means Martin Dúbravka continues in goal, with Livramento, Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schär and Dan Burn forming a back four.

Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock - who makes his 100th appearance for United - will line-up either side of Bruno Guimarães in the middle of the park, with Jacob Murphy, who was deployed at wing back at the Etihad last time out, and Anthony Gordon out wide on the flanks supporting Alexander Isak, who leads the line.

Harvey Barnes, Miguel Almirón, Elliot Anderson and Joe White are the most attacking substitutes available to Howe, with Matt Ritchie also named.

Defensively, Emil Krafth, Paul Dummett and Lewis Hall provide further reinforcements, with Loris Karius the backup between the sticks against the Hammers.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka; Tino Livramento, Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schär, Dan Burn; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimarães, Joe Willock; Jacob Murphy, Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon.

Substitutes: Loris Karius, Emil Krafth, Paul Dummett, Lewis Hall, Matt Ritchie, Elliot Anderson, Joe White, Miguel Almirón, Harvey Barnes.
