Cheick Tiote Returns – Only Change For Newcastle


Cheick Tiote is back in the Newcastle United starting line-up, as expected, for today’s clash with Liverpool at St. James’ Park.

But that’s the only change from the side that beat West Brom 3-1 last week at The Hawthorns.

And Pardew is expected to play again with the 4-3-3 formation, with Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba forming a lethal attacking three up front.

So it would appear that Jonas Gutierrez could again be at left-back,  with the midfield three now being Guthrie, Cabaye and Tiote, and Jonas is captain in place of his Argentine team-mate Fabricio Coloccini.

Ryan Taylor is back from his calf injury and is on the bench.

For Liverpool Andy Carroll, Jose Enrique and Craig Bellamy, all former Newcastle players, make the starting line-up.

Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel are the two center-backs,  and of course Steven Gerrrad captains the side,  and former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson is on the bench.

Craig Bellamy could be the danger man for Liverpool.

Teams:

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Tim Krul; Danny Simpson, Mike Williamson, James Perch, Jonas Gutierrez (c); Danny Guthrie, Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye; Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Shane Ferguson, Davide Santon, Dan Gosling, Ryan Taylor, Haris Vuckic, Shola Ameobi

Liverpool (4-4-2): Pepe Reina; Jon Flanagan, Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel, Jose Enrique; Jonjo Shelvey, Steven Gerrard (c), Jay Spearing, Craig Bellamy; Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez
Substitutes: Alexander Doni, Fabio Aurelio, Sebastian Coates, Maxi Rodriguez, Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing, Dirk Kuyt

    Also how come in every game that liverpool play the presenters say what a dissapointment carroll has been for them but because there playing us all of a sudden hes awesome again, gotta admit i hate sky, they always treat us like we’re the away team whos floundering around relegation in the pre match build up

    howay lads!

    I’m excited and nervous in equal measure!!!

    jonas at lb, leaving out raylor and santon for guthrie and tiote, i think pards may have just got this one right. having jonas next to willo and perchinho may be a masterstroke. he attacks, defends and leads by example, like colo.

    Our defense, wow, looks so much weaker than any other area. Guti, Perch, Willo, Simmo…. only Simmo is from the original first 11 in defense, and he is the weaker I think out of Colo, S.Taylor and now with the option of Santon (Why Santon is not in there by the way?)

    i live in switzerland, used to work at SJP in my student days. seeing the teams come out i get the same shudder in my spine. Excitement & nail-shredding nerves!

    Let’s show Carroll, Enrique and Dogleash this 8 point lead was no fluke!

    HWTL!!!

    Santon not playing lb because he is too offensive and often further up the pitch and someone end up covering for him. He needs to learn when to attack and when to just hang back and defend. That’ll come with experience

    they have no width which wont help carroll

    their formation shows kenny has no faith in his defence against our attack

    Think we’ll win big today.

    Their mid-field looks weak. Shelvey – Spearing v Tiote & Cabaye.
