Rafa Benitez has said that things will be different once we got our first win of the season.
And we did that last Saturday at home against a very good Watford side.
The 3 points took us out of the bottom three which we’d been in for far too long.
Now we are hoping that we can win again against the Cherries on Saturday at St. James’ Park and move further up the table.
The opposition are in 6th place in the league so it will not be easy by any means.
Ki Sung-yueng – could start on Saturday
But if we can defend well and score some goals – maybe from set pieces – we must have a decent chance to get our second win of the season.
And there’s a long two-week International break so a win would be extra good on Saturday.
Rafa has some selection problems for a change, and we could see Perez, Schar, and Ki all start on Saturday.
With Ki able to deliver the free kicks he will likely start, and it could be Schar vs Lascelles for one of the center-back slots.
Either Muto if fit, or Perez will start alongside Solomon Rondon.
Howay The Lads!!
