Krul, Janmaat And Tiote All Start – Cisse On Bench


stoke-city-fcnufc emblem

Alan Pardew picked the team we thought he would pick tonight, with Cabella in the withdrawn striker role and Sissoko and Gouffran on the wings.

We would have preferred young Armstrong to have started in the number 10 position – but this is still a very strong team we are fielding tonight, with Riviere the lone striker up front and it’s the familiar 4-2-3-1 formation.

This is the same team that started against Hull City when we went behind 2-0 but then came surging back in the last 20 minutes of the game with two good goals from Papiss Cisse.

Colback and Tiote will be in central midfield and Tim Krul returns in goal having recovered from the flu bug, as has Yoan Gouffran.

Papiss Cisse and Adam Armstrong are both on the bench,  and both should see some action tonight.

Teams:

Stoke (4-2-3-1): Asmir Begovic; Phil Bardsley, Ryan Shawcross (c), Marc Wilson, Marc Muniesa; Glenn Whelan, Steven Nzonzi; Mame Biram Diouf, Charlie Adam, Victor Moses; Peter Crouch
Substitutes: Thomas Sorensen, Erik Pieters, Robert Huth, Stephen Ireland, Marko Arnautovic, Oussama Assaidi, Bojan

Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Cheick Tiote, Jack Colback; Moussa Sissoko, Remy Cabella, Yoan Gouffran; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Steven Taylor, Vurnon Anita, Gabriel Obertan, Sammy Ameobi, Adam Armstrong, Papiss Cisse

Referee: Craig Pawson (South Yorkshire)

Newcastle will be going all out to win this game tonight – to break our duck – and that’s maybe the only result that will keep owner Mike Ashley happy.

If we lose this game it could well be curtains for Alan Pardew – but we are hoping for the win – we can do it.

Howay The Lads!!

    Come on hope our season starts here ! Think we can nick this one about time we scored first … From the weekends action shows how important set plays are both West brom and palace won due to their abilities to score from corners/free kicks

    Nufc haven’t won their last four Monday night games conceding 12 goals and Stoke City haven’t scored a goal at home.

    For crying out loud, would it really kill the self-proclaimed King to try a 4-4-2 instead of one up front??? The man is utterly clueless!

    Ed

    when has pardew ever gone all out for a win??
    One up front !!!!

    it will be the usual containment , defend deep and no midfield movement, as per.

    Even now i can’t see him changing his spots and ” going for it ”

    Catchy

    I’d say mbiwa was not that CB, good in different leagues but looked very poor in the prem. So many basic errors. Our set up doesn’t help defenders but he didn’t look good enough for the prem, just my opinion of course.

    We need a kompany, vidic, terry type…commanding and strong in the air

    Yeah sorry about that mate, I forgot everything’s rosy, with us being second from bottom and all that and Pardew using the same toothless tactics and formation regardless….I s’pose some of us just don’t know we’re born…

    The only scenario that Pardew would attack in: If we started games with a 1 goal handicap, and the match only lasted 20 minutes.

    Aye mate, unfortunately our manager is Pardews cousin, NUFC actually ended up with the most attack minded Pardew
    We play a 9-0-1

    You’re joking aren’t you? Pardew would throw on a sub at left back and try not to concede another!
