Team News: Lascelles, Atsu on Newcastle bench

Jamaal Lascelles and Christian Atsu make the Newcastle United bench for their Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

Jamaal Lascelles and Christian Atsu have been named on the Newcastle United bench for their Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

The Magpies defender, who has missed the last four games with a foot injury, is available once again, as is winger Atsu after shaking off a groin problem.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has made three changes in total from the side that lost 3-1 at Chelsea last Saturday.

DeAndre Yedlin replaces Chancel Mbemba in defence, Isaac Hayden takes Mohamed Diame's place in midfield, whil Joselu comes in for Ayoze Perez up front.

Full-back Paul Dummett, who has not played since damaging a hamstring on the opening day of the season, remains unavailable despite stepping up his rehabilitation in recent days.

Leicester, meanwhile, name an unchanged side from the one that started their 1-0 victory over Burnley last weekend.

Robert Huth and Matty James remain out, with the former yet to make an appearance this season, and with no date set for the pair's comeback.

Newcastle United: Darlow; Yedlin, Clark, Lejeune; Manquillo, Ritchie, Merino, Hayden; Murphy, Gayle, Joselu
Subs: Elliot, Lascelles, Shelvey, Diame, Atsu, Perez, Mitrovic

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell; Mahrez, Iborra, Ndidi, Albrighton; Gray, Vardy
Subs: Hamer, Fuchs, Dragovic, King, Ulloa, Okazaki, Iheanacho
