Newcastle midfielder Ki Sung-yueng.

Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto all picked up injuries during last Saturday's victory over Watford, and have been replaced by Fabian Schar, Ki Sung-yueng and Ayoze Perez respectively.

All three made a difference last weekend, but some supporters are slightly concerned about today's bench.

Here's how fans reacted on social media.

@yYlSBqCh84r33zA: I'm stuck in the middle with this lineup but go ahead

@RhysMelhuish22: I’m excited to see Ki again. He changed the game for us last week when he came on, interested to see a full 90 from him.

@with_rw: Finally! I can see Ki in the field 90’ full time!

@Toonman8589: Two centre backs who actually know how to keep the ball on the deck and pass it out... good to see

@scotthemy1971: No other options but them 11 really

@chrismorgan57: Have to be honest. While it will give us a very limited bench, am not too disappointed. Shelvey overrated. Lascelles is a miss but Schar looked a better ball player. Perez probably just ahead of Muto for me. Ki looked the business last week, actually moved off the ball...

@Adrian____29: Kenedy & Ki going to destroy Bournemouth

@schindlerelvin1: Young sorenson should be on bench give him a shot with first team

@LascellesNUFC: Good team fellas

@Carrollsinger: The bench is shocking!
