Newcastle Utd - Gate

Here is how Newcastle United will line up to face York City this evening.

Newcastle starting XI: Darlow, Bigirimana, Lascelles, Satka, Ferguson, Perez, Abeid, Gouffran, Aarons, De Jong, Mitrovic.

Newcastle substitutes: Elliot, Kemen, Johnson, Suddick.

Newcastle United continue their preparations for the new Premier League campaign as they head to Bootham Crescent to face League Two outfit York City.

After Sunday's 2-2 draw at Sheffield United, Steve McClaren's side face another test against a Football League club, with York gearing up for the League Two season.

Tonight is a big night for Newcastle fans, as they get the chance to see new signing Aleksandar Mitrovic in action for the first time since the Serbian hitman completed his big-money move from Anderlecht.

The rest of the starting line-up features big names such as Ayoze Perez, Rolando Aarons and Siem de Jong, whilst youngsters Gael Bigirimana, Jamaal Lascelles, Lubomir Satka and Shane Ferguson have a chance to impress.

There are only four players named on the bench, including midfielder Olivier Kemen, who has seen speculation surround his future throughout the summer so far.

The Magpies will be expected to win handsomely, and fans will be keen to see what Mitrovic can do in his first start for the club.
