Papiss Cisse and Cheick Tiote are both not available for the game at Manchester City tomorrow night, and it’s unlikely that Alan Pardew will play a weakened side, despite Liverpool being the visitors to St. James’ Park on Saturday.
Ayoze Perez – likely to start tomorrow night
Newcastle have taken a hammering in public opinion by saying that the Premier league is all important, and we have fielded weak teams in the past and haven’t had one good cup run since Alan Pardew became manager almost four years ago.
It wouldn’t surprise us if Alan plays almost an unchanged side tomorrow night at the Etihad – with just one or two changes.
Here’s what would be a decent team to face Manchester City – in a 4-3-3 formation:
Janmaat Taylor (S) Coloccini (c) Haidara
Colback Sissoko Anita
Cabella Perez Ameobi
Subs: Elliot Dummett Vuckic Armstrong Gouffran Ferreyra Obertan
Players who could make the starting line-up include Ryan Taylor – who will probably get a run out in the second half – as will Gabby Obertan – who was withdrawn at half time on Sunday for Sammy Ameobi.
Manchester City will field a strong side, so we think Alan will go for broke in the next two games and try to get two more wins.
The manager doesn’t really have much choice, given our poor start to the season – but things are starting to look up with two good wins in succession. 😀
What would your team be for tomorrow night?
Not many fans think we can win the game tomorrow night – and it’s got to be a win or a loss – because extra time and penalties will be played if necessary.
