This Could Be Newcastle’s New Team On Saturday

Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet are almost certain to start for Newcastle on Saturday when we are at home against an in-form West Ham United side.

It will be interesting to see what the team is with these two new signings in the line-up.

New signings Henri Saivet and Jonjo Shelvey

Both have been told they will play in central midfield so in that case this is on like line-up with the new signings starting.

Janmaat Mbemba Coloccini (c) Colback
Sissoko Saivet Shelvey Perez
Wijnaldum
Mitrovic

We are assuming that McClaren will use the experience of Jack Colback at left back – and that would mean Paul Dummett would drop to the bench.

That would  be unfortunate for Paul given he experienced probably his best moment in his career when he brilliantly hammered home the equalizer last night against Manchester United in the 90th minute.

If Saivet is used on the wing then maybe this is a possible starting eleven with Tiote back in central midfield and Saivet replacing young Ayoze Perez on the wing.

We’ll have to see what the starting side is against West Ham – but with Newcastle having just gained a measly 2 points in our last five league games we must start putting some wins on the board very soon.

Comments welcome.
