Newcastle visit Craven Cottage tomorrow and will be missing French Internationals Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy, who are both out injured, and of course Alan Pardew will not even be at the game.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – could start tomorrow at right back
John Carver will manage the side in tomorrow’s game, and Fabricio Coloccini will return from compassionate leave, and Fab will play a big part in tomorrow’s game.
With Debuchy out we thought initially that Davide Santon would come back in at right back, but after Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s solid showing at Hull, maybe he will keep his place and move over to right back.
We expect Newcastle to play in a 4-4-2 formation with Papiss Cisse coming in for Loic Remy up front, against a side that has conceded 65 goals – 15 goals more than the next worst defense in the league – Cardiff City – and 26 more than Newcastle.
So we expect Newcastle to attack Fulham, since defense is one of their weaknesses.
This is the team Alan Pardew could start tomorrow:
Yanga-Mbiwa Coloccini (c) Williamson Dummett
Sissoko Tiote Anita Gouffran
de Jong Cisse
Subs: Elliot Santon Taylor (S) Gosling Ben Arfa Ameobi (Sh) Ameobi (Sa)
We’re assuming both Ben Arfa and Davide Santon are fit again.
What’s your side for tomorrow?
That’s still a decent Newcastle side, and we expect Shola to be on the bench in case Luuk de Jong and Papiss Cisse misfire up front.
But it’s also a great chance for the two strikers to show they should still be at Newcastle come September, and both strikers need some goals before the end of the season.
It’s a good time to start scoring tomorrow.
And there is fairly high confidence that Newcastle can win this game tomorrow from our readers.
Let us know how you think the game will go against Fulham tomorrow.
