It would be great if we can get a second win in a row against Manchester United on Wednesday night at St. James’ Park.
Louis van Gaal vs John Carver
There are a number of things in our favor:
- Newcastle nearly always play well at home against the Red Devils
- Manchester United are struggling for consistency this season under new manager Louis van Gaal
- With almost 52,000 at the game against Aston Villa on Saturday – it’s almost certain to be a sell-out at St. James Park, and that will only help our players
As far as the team goes, it will probably be an unchanged side from the Villa win, although we may see Ryan Taylor at left back in place of Massadio Haidara – who could be doubtful after coming off against Aston Villa.
Ryan also showed he is a threat from free kicks and the 30 year-old had three shorts on target in those 30 minutes he played.
That was three times the number of shots Newcastle had on target at Manchester City in the previous game. 🙁
