New today in the Chronicle that both Florian Lejeune and DeAndre Yedlin should be fit again to return to the squad for the game at Swansea on Sunday afternoon.
Florian has recovered fully from the ankle injury he picked up in the first half of the first game against Spurs.
DeAndre has also finally recovered from his hamstring injury he picked up during pre-season, but it’s doubtful he will come straight back into the side on Sunday. with Javier Manquillo doing a decent job at right-back in the first three PL games of the season.
Javier Manquillo has been doing a decent job at right-back in the first three PL games of the season and could keep his place.
We think Florian is probably our best center-back this season, and he was impressive in pre-season.
So maybe he will return to the starting eleven at Swansea with Ciaran Clark possibly switching to left back in place of Chancel Mbemba, who has done well at left back for the last few games.
So some good news for a change for Newcastle and we are assuming that striker Dwight Gayle is available again after his recent sickness although we would expect the impressive Joselu to lead the line in south Wales.
And news today that Fulham may come back for Dwight in January, and we assume Rafa will try to get another striker lined up on loan or a permanent signing in January so we could cash in on Dwight.
It will all depend of course on how well Gayle plays for Newcastle through the end of this year.
If he scores lots of goals for us then he will be going nowhere.
What do you think?
