Newcastle Unchanged – Jamie Vardy Starts For Leicester


nufc emblemLeicester City svg

The Newcastle team has just been announced the team for the important game today and as expected it’s unchanged from the side that won 1-0 at Bournemouth last time out.

Jamie Vardy has presumably passed his fitness test and he will start the game against Newcastle today and try to equal Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring in ten successive PL games.

It’s up to our defense to keep him from scoring and maybe get our third clean sheet on the trot.

Teams:

Newcastle (4-4-2): Rob Elliot; Daryl Janmaat, Chancel Mbemba, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote, Vurnon Anita, Georginio Wijnaldum; Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic
Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Jamie Sterry, Jamaal Lascelles, Siem de Jong, Yoan Gouffran, Florian Thauvin, Papiss Cisse

Leicester (4-4-2): Kasper Schmeichel; Danny Simpson, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan (c), Christian Fuchs; Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kanté, Danny Drinkwater, Marc Albrighton; Leonardo Ulloa, Jamie Vardy
Substitutes: Mark Schwarzer Ritchie De Laet, Andy King, Gokhan Inler, Jeff Schlupp, Nathan Dyer, Shinji Okazaki

It’s good to see fullback Jamie Sterry on the subs bench and it looks like he’s come in for Kevin Mbabu – who may be out injured?

Jamie turns 20 years old today.

This is what Steve McClaren has said about Leicester before the game:

“The Premier League is full of top strikers and quick players like Jamie Vardy and like any other game, we just have to be ready.”

“Honestly, we hope he won’t get to play tomorrow but if he does, he does and it’s the opponent we have to play against and Leicester have a lot of quality throughout the team, not just Vardy.”

“Mahrez, Albrighton and Drinkwater are all very good players in midfield who have been fantastic this season. They’re very well set up and strong defensively and that’s why they are one point off the top of the table.”

“Everyone is always looking at the PL level, especially now,” “We’re always aware of these non league players and there are always players around who develop late.”

“I came across Vardy at Derby and to come from non-league and keep going in the Premier League just shows that it can be done.”

“For all players at whatever level, they should never give up, never stop trying or believing because with hard work and the right breaks, you can make it, and Jamie Vardy is a perfect example.”

Almost half our fans think we can win this game and a third think we will lose it.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Leicester?

    tiote + anita = loss. id rather take our chances with tiote first half and thauvan, then replace tiote anita when he picks up a yellow

    Hmm. This was one of Pardew’s worst qualities… His fear to change the team and constantly try to improve it. We were absolutely terrible v bmouth last week but still no changes. How can the other players expect a chance?

    Classic pardew move. Maca Insists he knows best with the lineup and ignore the results of the previous games.

    Oh lordy, Tiote & Anita together. There are not many other options to be fair. Soaking up pressure playing at home it is then.

    Guessing Mclaren does not want to make changes until someone gets injured or suspended then ?

    Would have had Thauvin on the left wing which would have meant Dummett could sit back and not get caught out as he needs to come forward to when Sissoko or Gini play on his side and cut in

    I have watched Leicester a lot this season because theyare great to watch and this will be our hardest test

    i think we’ll lose today. 2-1 to leicester. they are incredibly strong and i think they will be too good for us. Colo will get skinned by Vardy today. Vardy with 2 goals and Mitrovic for us.

    Mitrovic needs Thauvin. At least some assists for him.

    Sorry but I think staring with both Anita ( who I think is a very good player) and Tiote is a good choice. Bring florian on in the second half

    I think the from four can and will cause a lot of trouble for LC, and should we manage to go a couple up by HT I would the sacrifice Tiote for Florian and go for more goals.

    I have faith

    I hope Mitro feels differently about playing for the toon than he did for his country last time out. And that our french fellas are up for the day job, given recent events..

    Easy win for Leicester today they have so much pace even on the bench. Tiote will have to cover Anita who will go missing for at least 85 mins. Dummett will be turned inside out and Colo will be running on ice trying to catch Vardy.

    One day i dream that we will be as good as them fcuk me what happened to us.

    because there is ZERO consistency in officiating. WE NEVER get those calls. watford wasnt even on the ball. weak call. united found a way to win anyway.
