A number of fans have through that both Aleksander Mitrovic and Dwight Gayle up front in a 4-4 -2 formation would make Newcastle a dominant attacking force.
Dwight Gayle could feed off the physical Mitro and it seems that both players could score the goals.
The other way the two of them could play together in the same team is in the normal 4-2-3-1 formation Dwight Gayle could play as a withdrawn striker behind the Serbian striker.
Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic
We’ve heard of fighting for your place – but this is ridiculous
But it doesn’t look like that will happen with what Rafa has said when asked if Gayle and Mitrovic could start together against Cardiff this Saturday:
“If they score two goals, each one every time that they play, I’m not too worried about playing one at a time.”
“Maybe the other one can score two goals and I’ll be happy with that.” “No-one can guarantee that if you play with two strikers you will be much better.”
“So we are quite good now, and we will keep enjoying this situation.”
Mitrovic looked really good on Saturday at Deepdale and he is the consummate center-forward who can score goals with his head or feet and hold play up and he’s a very physical player.
It would be interesting to see them playing together – just to see how they could operate together.
