Alan Pardew is going to have some trouble picking the starting eleven on Saturday, and for this game we will assume every player is fit and ready to go apart from Davide Santon and Siem de Jong.
Rolando Aarons – great goal after six minutes – must start
And after the great win on Wednesday night, there are some players who started that game who may not even be on the bench tomorrow – and it shows how the strength of the Newcastle side is improving.
There are some players in top form who are missing from this side.
Here’s our best side at the moment in a 4-3-3 formation:
Janmaat Taylor (S) Coloccini (c) Dummett
Sissoko Tiote Colback
Obertan Cisse Aarons
Subs: Elliot Williamson Taylor (R) Cabella Ameobi (S) Gouffran Perez
So missing from the bench are Massadio Haidara, Mehdi Abeid, Adam Armstrong and Manu Riviere – who all played on Wednesday night.
With Ryan Taylor back in the squad, he can play either midfield or full back so he’s a great sub to have on the bench, and we are starting Rolando Aarons in the hope of Aarons getting at least one half out of him and Sammy can then come in.
Usually Gouffran would start the game, but we have so many wingers in form and threatening the opposing defense, that we are going for Obertan and Aarons to start this game.
What’s you best team for tomorrow?
And almost 50% of fans think we can win this game – which is a big turnaround from the last three games.
We have to go all out tomorrow for all 3 points – and we’re sure that’s exactly what we will do – in front of a sell out crowd at St. James’ Park.
Howay The Lads!!
