We take a shot at naming Rafa Benitez’ starting eleven for each game and it’s certainly not easy to get it right.
We will have the FA Cup 3rd round replay on Wednesday night at St. James’ Park so we expect Rafa to revert to his more regular players tomorrow at Brentford and in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation.
Here’s the side that could start the game tomorrow afternoon at Griffin Park:
Anita Lascelles (c) Clark Dummett
Ritchie Perez Gouffran
That looks like 8 changes from the side that started the game at Birmingham City last Saturday with only Lascelles, Colback and Anita starting last week.
We are assuming Perez is fit to start tomorrow.
What would your team be for tomorrow’s game?
