Newcastle United travel to Oxford this evening looking to win through to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The two sides played out a goalless draw at St James' Park 10 days ago but have a second chance to book a last 16 date with Championship side West Brom.

Steve Bruce has pledged to take the cup seriously this season as the Magpies look to win through to the fifth round for the first time since 2006.

However, he has confirmed he will make certain changes to his starting XI ahead of this evening's clash with the likes of Fabian Schar, Florian Lejeune and the Longstaff brothers likely to get some game-time.

Here is how our writers would line up this evening.

Ciaran Kelly

Whatever you think about Oxford United's confident display at St James' Park, when the League One side were unlucky not to win the game, Karl Robinson's team will be even better in front of their own fans.

Oxford may have lost Tarique Fosu and Shandon Baptiste to Brenford, but they have plenty of cup pedigree and have already hammered West Ham United in the Carabao Cup at the Kassam Stadium.

Newcastle have to be so much better than they have been in the last couple of weeks to progress. This is an ideal game to hand Fabian Schar and Florian Lejeune a start, and bring the Longstaff brothers in but, Allan Saint-Maximin aside, I would go as strong as possible.

My team: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Ritchie; Sean Longstaff, Matty Longstaff; Almiron, Atsu; Joelinton

Sean McCormick

Steve Bruce has pledged to take the FA Cup seriously and I expect him to name a strong side at the Kassam Stadium.

Given he has named Fabian Schar, Florian Lejeune and the Longstaff brothers as those he plans to bring into the side this evening I can't see him making too many other changes other than one of Miguel Almiron or Allan Saint-Maximin making way for Christian Atsu.

Saint-Maximin is still working his way back to full fitness while Bruce complained of potential burnout for Almiron.

Joelinton will lead the line in what will remain a 5-2-2-1 formation.

My team: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Ritchie; Sean Longstaff, Matty Longstaff; Saint-Maximin, Atsu; Joelinton

Andrew Musgrove

What do you do here? On one hand, you want to see the strongest team possible but clearly something's not working with the current set-up.

Do you change the formation? It seems Steve Bruce is yet to be convinced that his players can handle that against Oxford, let alone a Premier League side.

Injuries and burn-out will impact the choices - do you risk Allan Saint-Maximin? Do you pull Joelinton out of the limelight?

There are so many questions surrounding a game that shouldn't even have been needed, in terms of Newcastle should have beaten Oxford at the first time of asking.

I think Bruce will stick with five at the back but bring in Florian Lejeune and Fabian Schar to play alongside Jamaal Lascelles.

We'll see DeAndre Yedlin and Matt Ritchie at wing-back with Christian Atsu replacing Allan Saint-Maximin.

In the middle, I think we'll see the two Longstaff brothers, and Miguel Almiron and Joelinton keep their spots - because there isn't anyone else.

My team: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Ritchie; Sean Longstaff, Matty Longstaff; Almiron, Atsu; Joelinton

Stuart Jamieson

Even though Bruce has tried and failed when he has changed tactics before, I would switch to a 4-4-2 at Oxford. Joelinton was hopelessly isolated in the first game at St James' Park and, while his options are limited, I would throw Elias Sorensen the chance to show what he can do.

Bruce doesn't have too many options available to him for rotation other than those he's already outlined, but I would give Miguel Almiron a break and have him on the bench just in case.

My team: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lejeune, Ritchie; Matty Longstaff, Sean Longstaff; Atsu, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton, Sorensen
