Two Changes – Javier Manquillo And Jacob Murphy Start At Watford


Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just named his team which he hopes will break our two-game losing streak at Watford this afternoon.

There are two changes with Manquillo coming in for DeAndre Yedlin at right back and Murphy coming in for Matt Ritchie on the right wing.

Both Matt Ritchie and DeAndre Yedlin are on the bench today.

Jacob Murphy – get a start today

Newcastle have not played well in the last two games, and it’s not a lack of effort but more a lack of intensity in our play.

If we can fix that today we have a decent chance of winning this game.

Good news today with Rafa Benitez nominated as Premier League Manager of the Year, and he’s one of six candidates named.

The other candidates are Chris Hughton of Brighton, Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool, Burnley’s Sean Dyche and Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson.

Let’s hope we can get a win today at Vicarage Road – that’s what we really need to ensure we can finish 10th in the league.

Almost half our fans think we can win this game.

    I am happy to see Manquillo getting a game. If you watch him sitting on the bench you can see he is very involved in following the action and is itching to get on and play. Manquillo will play out of his skin today… no challenge will be shirked.

    Manquillo a player that Rafa alluded to as needed another chance. Shame that Mbemba appears to be earmarked for sale in the summer as hes not even made the bench i think since we have been safe.

    Would have liked to see merino start.

    I’ll try that again,

    Manquillo..
    I guess we’re still keeping as much pace on that side as Murphy is much quicker than Ritchie, and Manquillo likes a crunch more than Yedders..
    Murphy..
    Desperate to make it and will run his socks off against a completely out of sorts defence!

    Haiidara..
    Thanks for the effort, maybe if you weren’t scandalously assaulted by McManaman things could have been different!

    In terms of the squad, people asking about Chancel Mbemba – my understanding is he hasn’t exactly impressed in training recently…

    Yedlin, meanwhile, has a slight knock – & so too does Isaac Hayden, who has a minor knee problem. That’s why they’re on the bench #nufc

    We couldnt handle watfords formation last time out with yedlin and ritchie both having poor games. Both not playing today but neither are richarlison and the player who played lwb for them that day.

    Merino should’ve started. Must be thinking why did I Ieave Dortmund’s bench to sit on Newcastle’s bench? Up to December he was in our top 3 performers, playing so well that we swiftly moved to sign him permanently, numerous MOTM awards – surely worthy of a run in the team with safety secure.

    Stoke should have kept Joselu. Think about it, as soon as he leaves they fall to pieces and get relegated. Big mistake letting him go!!

    There is around a 20 second delay, but that means it doesn’t keep pausing all the time.

    But if Stoke kept Joselu then we would have been relegated instead. He’s been instrumental in our survival this season.
