Rafa Benitez has just announced his team to play Swansea City this afternoon in what is a vital home game against a team 6 points below us in the Premier League table.
The only surprise s that Mo Diame starts in place of Mikel Merino -= otherwise the team we predicted would start would have been accurate – for a change.

But credit to Diame because the last few games he has played he’s been in good form so we have to think he’s looking good in training.
Karl Darlow keeps his place in goals with Rob Elliot on the bench.
Mo Diame – starts in central midfield with Jonjo Shelvey
Almost four fans in five think we can win this game this afternoon and go to 25 points after 23 games played.
Howay The Lads!!
