Is This Rafa Benitez’ Team For Wigan Athletic?

Newcastle will probably play an attacking side at Wigan Athletic tomorrow night.

Wigan haven’t scored in nine of their previous 13 games so they have a hard job putting the ball in the net and Newcastle must win this game.

Here’s the side that Rafa could start tomorrow night:

Yedlin Lascelles (c) Clark Lazaar
Hayden Shelvey
Atsu Perez Gouffran

There are four changes from the side that started on Saturday against Birmingham City with Yedlin, Lazaar, Atsu and Perez coming in.

If Jack Colback is fit again he would come in for Hayden in central midfield.

What team would you start tomorrow night?

    Wigan don’t concede many either 9 their last 13 matches have had less than 2 goals so this will probably be 0-1 win.

    Well, not a great set of scores for us this evening. Reading getting beat and Huddersfield drawing… But that’s about it.

    I have a strange feeling we might see Mitro and Gayle tomorrow start tomorrow.
    Nah…Changed my mind. Rafa won’t.
