Christian Atsu, who came off the bench to score the second goal against Latics, will hope to have done enough to force his way into the side.

Striker Ayoze Perez was also a substitute against Wigan following illness and is another pushing for a start, while Jack Colback will hope to return after a month out with an eye problem.

If Benitez does decide to make changes then Aleksandar Mitrovic, Achraf Lazaar, DeAndre Yedlin and Chancel Mbemba will all come into contention.
