Watford and Newcastle United both go into today's game with new squad members hoping to give their season a boost.

Here's how I think the Hornets could line up at St James' Park this afternoon.

GK: Ben Foster

Claudio Ranieri was coy when asked if he knew who his number one goalkeeper was, suggesting we might be in for a change.

RB: Jeremy Ngakia

Hasn't looked bad in recent performances. Kiko Femenia could be in line for a return, but I wouldn't be surprised to see either.

CB: Craig Cathcart

While changes are expected today, I think Ranieri is likely to once again call on Cathcart.

CB: Samir

Looks to be in line for a debut, will likely be up against a debutant for the Geordies in new signing Chris Wood.

LB: Hassane Kamara

With Adam Masina away and Danny Rose frozen out, I'm expecting another debut at left back.

CM: Edo Kayembe

The new arrival could solve the problem of who fits into the deep lying midfield position.

CM: Moussa Sissoko

Can expect a hostile reception against his former club.

CM: Juraj Kucka

Will need to be solid and work hard to break up Newcastle attacks.

RW: Joao Pedro

Surely did enough against Spurs and Leicester to warrant a start.

LW: Emmanuel Dennis

Has hopefully shaken off his knock to give the Newcastle defenders a tough time.

ST: Joshua King

Could have a few chances against a defence lacking in confidence.
