Marco Silvestri replaces Rob Green in goal while Charlie Taylor and Luke Ayling make way in the full back positions for Lewie Coyle and the back-from-injury Gaetano Berardi.

Liam Cooper also comes in for Pontus Jansson at centre-back to partner Bartley.

Elsewhere, Eunan O’Kane, Kalvin Phillips, Hadi Sacko and Chris Wood all make way for Matt Grimes, Alex Mowatt, Souleymane Doukara and Marcus Antonsson.
