Rafa Benitez may change things up front for the game at Burnley on Monday night.
Given the results yesterday the worst Newcastle can be in the league table on Monday night is 10th.
That’s if we lose and Southampton win today at Brighton & Hove Albion.
The best we can do is to be in 6th place if we win on Monday night and we will then go above Liverpool and just behind Arsenal in the league table.
Let’s hope we can get the win and we’ll be on 17 points from our first 10 games.
Dwight Gayle – could he get a chance on Monday night?
All three strikers, Joselu, Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic are fit again, and maybe Rafa will change things up front.
We’d be surprised if Dwight gets the start, but we suppose it’s possible that Mitro could start because he can lead the line well – much like Joselu does.
This is what Rafa has said today about the strikers and also about Burnley manager Sean Dyche:
“We have Dwight doing well last year and scoring a lot of goals.”
“This year Joselu is doing well and then it is ‘oh, Dwight is not playing’. And then it is Mitrovic.”
“Mitro was playing the other day, Dwight is coming back from injury so he will be available.”
“It depends on how many strikers you want on the bench or if you play with two strikers.” “Mitrovic and Dwight are training well so we have to decide.”
“Sean Dyche does a great job. It depends on owners to say they want this kind of manager, who plays this kind of football or do this kind of business.”
“Is he doing well – yes. Can he manage in another team – yes I think so.”
A vast majority of fans think we can get something out of this game at Turf Moor tomorrow night.
