In his press conference yesterday for the important game tonight at home against Manchester United, Steve McClaren mentioned that some of our players had a few niggles, but that Jack Colback should be available again after a slight hamstring problem.
Some doubts exist over the fitness of Fabricio Coloccini (hamstring), Kevin Mbabu (thigh) and Florian Thauvin (ankle), but they all trained yesterday and we´ll see if they have any negative reaction to that.
Fabricio Coloccini – a doubt for tonight
This was Newcastle´s last goal – against Aston Villa
As far as the team goes for tonight, we are hoping that Kevin Mbabu will keep his place after his Man of the Match performance on Saturday at Watford and we expect him to come in for Paul Dummett at left back.
Jack Colback should again return in central midfield so this could be the team for tonight:
Janmaat Mbemba Coloccini (c) Mbabu
Sissoko Tiote Colback Anita
Subs: Darlow Dummett Lascelles Thauvin Gouffran de Jong Toney
