Alan Pardew has just announced the Newcastle side for the tough game at Old Trafford today, and 17 year-old local lad Adam Armstrong gets a start up front, and Dutchman Vurnon Anita also gets a rare start.
Newcastle: Alnwick; Janmaat, Coloccini (c), S.Taylor, Dummett; Colback, Anita; Sissoko, Perez, Gouffran; Armstrong
Subs: Woodman, Williamson, Satka, Cabella, Vuckic, Riviere, Cisse
It seems like Adam must be showing up well in training, because the boss has talked about how he has to give him a chance in the side – and Adam gets one today.
Vurnon Anita finally gets another start, after he’s been out of the starting line-up for a couple of months, and he comes in for the suspended Cheick Tiote.
The defense is unchanged from the Sunderland game, and it looks like we may be playing in a 4-5-1 formation with Armstrong the lone striker up front.
Lubo Satka and Haris Vuckic are on the bench. as we seem to be short of players, with currently 10 players out injured, and Tiote unavailable for this game.
It’s going to be tough game today and if we are going to get anything out of it then our defense will have to put in a very good performance.
On the positive side the pressure should also be off our players since we are not expected to get anything out of this game.
We are willing to be surprised today. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
