Premier League. Team news: Wilson starts at Forest

10 Feb 24

Team news from the City Ground ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest on Saturday

The Magpies forward, who made his long-awaited return from injury as a substitute in last weekend's 4-4 draw at home to Luton Town, will start up front for Eddie Howe's side as they look to topple Forest at the City Ground.

Wilson's inclusion at the expense of Jacob Murphy is the only change to the United side, meaning Anthony Gordon has been passed fit and will start on the left flank after he was forced off against the Hatters, while Dan Burn keeps his place at left back.

Martin Dúbravka is in goal, with Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schär, Sven Botman and Burn forming a four-man defence.

In midfield, Bruno Guimarães anchors the Magpies side with Lewis Miley and Sean Longstaff either side of the Brazilian international.

And Wilson will spearhead Newcastle's attack against Nuno Espirito Santo's men, with Miguel Almirón and Gordon supporting from the wings.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles is back on the bench after a spell out injured, with Murphy also named as well as Harvey Barnes, who scored after being introduced on his own comeback last Saturday.

There is also defensive cover in the shape of Tino Livramento, Emil Krafth, Paul Dummett and Lewis Hall, with Matt Ritchie and Loris Karius completing the bench available to Howe.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka; Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schär, Sven Botman, Dan Burn; Lewis Miley, Bruno Guimarães, Sean Longstaff; Miguel Almirón, Callum Wilson, Anthony Gordon.

Substitutes: Loris Karius, Tino Livramento, Emil Krafth, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Lewis Hall, Matt Ritchie, Jacob Murphy, Harvey Barnes.
