It’s now three weeks since we last played in the Premier League and had that terrific 3-0 win over Southampton at home.
Newcastle will try to do the same thing against Huddersfield tomorrow who, like the Saints, are a point behind Newcastle before this game.
A win will take us 4 points clear of the Terriers, and that’s what we must do tomorrow afternoon – win the game.
And we don’t think Rafa will make any changes from the side that did so well in our last league game.
Islam Slimani – on the bench tomorrow?
This is the starting eleven we expect against Huddersfield:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Lejeune Dummett
Ritchie Shelvey Diame Kenedy
Joselu is the only player who is injured and not available for tomorrow’s game.
We should also see Islam Slimani on the bench tomorrow, especially since Joselu is not available, and we could see the Algerian make his debut in the second half tomorrow.
Over 80% of fans think we will win this game tomorrow, but it could still be a difficult game against a well organized Terriers side.
What do you think?
