Elias Kachunga is handed a start for Huddersfield Town in this afternoon's trip to Newcastle United.

Elias Kachunga has been handed a start for Huddersfield Town in this afternoon's trip to Newcastle United.

The German makes his first start of 2018 in a side that shows five changes from the one that lost to Crystal Palace two weeks ago.

Terence Kongolo makes his own return from injury, while Laurent Depoitre, Tommy Smith and Rajiv van La Parra also come into the XI.

Florent Hadergjonaj, Scott Malone, Colin Quaner, Tom Ince and Steve Mounie all drop to the bench as the Terriers try to arrest a three-match goalless streak.

Rafael Benitez's lineup is static from the side that beat Southampton on March 10, but there is a notable inclusion on the bench as Islam Slimani is on standby to make his debut since his loan move from Leicester City.

Newcastle United: Dubravka; Dummett, Lascelles, Lejeune, Yedlin; Kenedy, Shelvey, Diame, Ritchie; Perez; Gayle
Subs: Darlow, Clark, Murphy, Slimani, Hayden, Manquillo, Atsu

Huddersfield Town: Lossl; Smith, Kongolo, Schindler, Jorgensen; Hogg, Mooy; Van La Parra, Pritchard, Kachunga; Depoitre
Subs: Coleman, Malone, Billing, Ince, Quaner, Mounie, Hadergjonaj
