Dubravka, Lejeune Amd Kenedy Start Against Manchester United – No Slimani


Rafa Benitez and Newcastle have just announced the team to play Manchester United at St. James’ Park today.

Newcastle are now 4th bottom at the start of today after yesterday’s games, and we need all 3 points out of this difficult game.

Martin Dubravka makes his debut but there’s not Islam Slimani – so he must still be inured.

Martin Dubravka – makes his debut in goal

We need to get him fit quickly so he can help us get the 15 points or more we need to survive.

Florian Lejeune comes in for Ciaran Clark, who is not even on the bench.

Howay The Lads!!

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Manchester United?

    Our attacking play may be worse than even some championship sides..

    Diame doing well again. Shelvey showing a bit more energy than usual. Perez dawdling as usual. Ritchie offering nothing in an attacking sense.

    Wish we could keep up the intensity of the first 15 all match. We were really taking it to them.

    Perez needs to sharpen up….so slow at decision making and speed of thought.

    Ritchie I think is a better version than Jonas Guiterez.. Alot of graft but nothing else. Will the score the odd goal and assist.

    Ritchie better than Jonas? Having a laugh. Jonas waltzed passed 3 or 4 players at a time. Ritchie can’t take on 1. Only better at set-pieces. Jonas workrate was another level to anybody we currently have and he could actually tackle instead of just track and press.

    to be fair we haven’t been too bad in defence and central midfield
    Our problem is lack of creativity from the wings
    Kennedy has been extremely underwhelming

    This is pretty shocking. Beginning to wonder how much of a difference slimani will make when rafa has them trained to be compact at cost of fast attacking play

    toonbrother…they haven’t been able to get Kennedy the ball. Kind of hard to make an impact when you’re marked out of the game.

    Dagwoodz players like Atsu always make their presence felt
    because they go looking for the ball
    Kennedy can do better in my opinion

    Disagree toonbrother. Atsu disappears just as often as others. Kenedy is a class above Atsu. Not saying he’s a world beater at all, but is more inventive when on the ball. Could be why Manure is marking him out of the game.

    100% if it was at the other end of the pitch ref would have given it.

    Ref is having a nightmare.

    Even Neville saying it was a foul on Gayle and just a matter of whether in the box or not. I hate refs, how is it so often they’re contrarian to what the vast majority can see?

    Good first half. If the ref hadnt bottled it we may have had a pen. Great start for the back 5. Dubravka has slotted in like he’s been there all season
