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

    sky commentators wondering why we boo carroll and enrqiue?

    saying that carrol wanted to stay?

    has he heard pardews press conference where he says carroll wanted to leave or get more money?

    and enrique having digs at the club?

    poor standard of journalism

    Don’t think that Jose should get booed.
    He was a good player for us. And we should not pump their adrenaline too much. Carroll and Bellamy, yeah, but not Jose.
