It looks like Rafa will make quite a number of changes to the side that beat Preston 6-0 on Tuesday night for our important league clash at Deepdale tomorrow afternoon, where we will try to get all 3 points and keep our 3 point lead at the top of the Championship.
Preston were unbeaten in their previous 7 games before Tuesday night, which included 5 wins and they had beaten teams like Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Norwich in that streak, so it will certainly not be an easy game tomorrow afternoon.
We expect Rafa to make a lot of changes to the side that did so well against Preston and we expect him to make 8 changes to the side.
Rafa Benitez – many changes to the side for tomorrow?
We are assuming Jack Colback, Daryl Murphy, Achraf Lazaar, Jesus Gamez and of course Rob Elliot are not fit for this game.
Here’s the side we expect Rafa to start tomorrow:
Anita Lascelles (c) Clark Dummett
Ritchie Perez Gouffran
Rafa could start Aleksandar Mitrovic up front but Dwight Gayle has been in terrific goalscoring form of late and the manager could also keep DeAndre Yedlin at right back.
What would your team be for Preston tomorrow?
