Three Changes – Lascelles, Atsu And Murphy Start At Goodison


Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the tough game at Goodison Park tonight which has 7:45 pm kickoff time and it’s not exactly been a good away ground for us over recent years.

We surprisingly lost 3-0 at home to West Ham on Saturday afternoon and it’s vital that the players try to get back to their winning ways.

It looks like Rafa will play five at the back tonight with Lascelles coming back in Manquillo keeping his place at left-back.

Jamaal Lascelles returns to the side after injury

Murphy and Atsu come into the side at the expense of Perez and Ritchie – who is suspended for this game.

As we’ve mentioned in earlier articles today if Newcastle can keep winning games a takeover could even happen this month, or if not this year then in January.

But we cannot have another slump and slip back into the relegation zone.

There is not a lot of confidence from fans that we can win the game tonight with only one in seven thinking we can get all 3 points.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Everton?

    Got to go 3 -0 to Everton.
    That little runt Walcott will come on 2nd half and score.

    Manquillo is up against Lookman.
    Wasn’t that what the SJP crowd yelled at him for most of last Saturday afternoon?

    Let’s see what Atsu and Murphy can do with a bit more freedom.

    Atsu in particular tends to be much better when he starts. Hope he is predominantly down the left and keeps it simple, dribble, beat your man and get good delivery into the box, that’s his strength and we haven;t seen enough of it for a long time. Dismal as a sub, never seems to get on the same page as the rest.

    Looks like Rafa is opting the tactics the Hammers did against us last match. Hit ’em on the break?

    Iv got some fresh info .

    I think you also know something but for the flack you and others took last year I understand.

    I say the above in light of what Iv been told in private .

    It’s a shame when one imparts news that just three jealous individuals on here ruin it for the majority and have me hesitating.

    Murphy and Atsu have to step up give us 100% energy all game and don’t be afraid to take on your fullback

    Also when we have it on the opposite wing make runs and try and get into the box you have the talent and pace just need the belief !!

    OLG, from what I now understand, the plane was nothing to do with NUFC, rather a potential investment in a local software company.

    TBH, I’ve heard so much it’s trying to wade through the rubbish and put something together, but hopefully we’re getting there… 😉

    I don’t think Rafa thinks he can come away with anything from Goodison, I think Rafa’s trying to crucify Murphy, he’s on a hiding to nothing, nothing to work with. Atsu ffs.

    Just spotted Peter Kenyon in a taxi just outside St James Park. Asked him if he was close to a takeover. “Wait till Friday mate” all he said, seemed like a nice enough guy #nufc

    catchy,
    Give it a rest will you. You know that Turkish guy we were linked with for ages hoping his contract would run down, well Everton paid 27M for him, they then coughed up 20M for Walcott and 45M for Sigurdsson, they even managed to keep on to Leighton Baines without the need to sell him to a ”bigger” club,nor do they have the fourth lowest wage bill in the PL, guess what?, they haven’t done a Leeds or qualified for CL, it’s called ambition, we have to play the cards dealt to us until this parasite has gone. Get behind the team instead of praying we lose ffs!!!

    Diame not looking at the races again quite yet. The amount of tackles and interceptions he’s making has massively dropped off recently.

    That was awful from Manquillo, done from the throwing, completely lost his man. Would’ve been solely his fault if they scored there.
