  1. Christopher Mather: Nice to see Brereton starting. Hoping he can find his shooting boots now.

    Christopher is happy to see 19-year-old Ben Brereton starting tonight. Newcastle have some youngsters in their line-up too.

    Rafa was criticised by some Newcastle fans for his team selection in the FA Cup, after he rested a number of first-team players.

    Ahead tonight’s fixture he defended that decision and said will struggle to “have a go” in this season’s Cup because of their position in the Premier League.

    The Magpies dropped into the Premier League relegation zone last weekend.

    “Who has a chance, a realistic chance? Teams in the middle of the table because they can have a go because they are safe,” Benitez said.

    “The other teams, you have to manage it really carefully.”

    Fellow Premier League strugglers Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham went out in the FA Cup in the third round to lower-league opposition, while Southampton were taken to a replay by Derby.

    “Why you see these teams and they were out? Because the Premier League is massive,” Benitez said.

    “You have £130m guaranteed if you are there. So everyone is trying to manage the situation. You have to be realistic.”

    Blackburn were heading through in the original fixture against Newcastle 10 days afo before an 84th minute equaliser from the penalty spot for the Magpies.

    Bradley Dack had given the Championship side the lead at St James’ Park in 56th minute.

    Newcastle made eight changes for that game and has done the same again tonight.
