CALLUM WILSON, Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes are all in the starting line-up for Newcastle United's final pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao this afternoon.

Eddie Howe has turned to his attacking big guns as part of 11 changes from the team that kicked off last night's 1-0 friendly win over Atalanta.

Martin Dubravka returns to the starting side after recovering from a sprained wrist, while Sven Botman will make his first appearance at St James' Park at the heart of the Magpies' back four.

Guimaraes, Joe Willock and Joelinton will form the midfield three, with Matt Ritchie and Saint-Maximin set to play on either side of Wilson in attack.

Karl Darlow is not in the squad, despite not having been involved in the matchday group for last night's game either.

NEWCASTLE (4-3-3): Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Botman, Dummett; Guimaraes, Willock, Joelinton; Ritchie, Wilson, Saint-Maximin.

Subs: Gillespie (gk), M Longstaff, de Bolle, Munoz, Bondswell, Stephenson, Turner-Cooke, Murphy, Miley.
