STARTING 11: Dubravka – Krafth, Lascelles, Burn, Targett – Guimaraes, Longstaff, Joelinton – Almiron, Wood, Saint-Maximin.
SUBS: Darlow, Dummett, Schar, Trippier, Manquillo, Ritchie, Murphy, Gayle, Wilson.

The good news is that Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier are BOTH back on the bench for the first time in 2022, however Shelvey and Willock are both absent from the matchday squad.
