Benitez should give these 3 Newcastle players a chance against Reading

Right-back DeAndre Yedlin has made 18 Championship starts for Newcastle this season following his permanent move from Tottenham in the summer.

Yet he lost his place in the side to Vernon Anita against Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will hope that Anita’s solid if unspectacular display in a makeshift role means that he returns against Reading on Tuesday night.

With Roy Beerens and Garath McCleary down the flanks, Benitez will likely need Yedlin’s greater defensive capabilities and pace against the Royals, so it wouldn’t be overly surprising if he came back into the side at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday.
