John Carver has just announced the Newcastle side for the home game against Manchester United tonight, and an expected Ryan Taylor has come in for the injured Massadio Haidara at left-back, and young Lubo Saka has been brought in as a sub.
Newcastle (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Ryan Taylor; Gabriel Obertan, Moussa Sissoko, Mehdi Abeid, Sammy Ameobi; Emmanuel Riviere, Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Lubomir Satka, Vurnon Anita, Jonas Gutierrez, Yoan Gouffran, Ayoze Perez, Adam Armstrong
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo; Ander Herrera, Daley Blind; Angel Di Maria, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young; Wayne Rooney (c)
Substitutes: Anders Lindegaard, Phil Jones, Paddy McNair, Michael Carrick, Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj, Radamel Falcao
Referee: Anthony Taylor (Cheshire)
Other than that one change the team is unchanged from Saturday, and John Carver again has the side in a 4-4-2 formation.
That’s the team we thought John would choose – so it’s not a great surprise – and it’s a good side, with Ryan Taylor hopefully bringing some threat from his free kicks and even corners.
Less than one in four Newcastle fans think we can win this game tonight.
We need to take something out of this game.
Howay The Lads!!
