Twitter sensation Nick Pope also kept his place in goal despite being a slight doubt ahead of the match.

The game marks a return to The Amex Stadium for Dan Burn following his move from Brighton to Newcastle in January.

Both the Magpies and Seagulls opened their Premier League season’s with impressive wins last weekend.
