Peter Lovenkrands Comes In For The Suspended Gutierrez


A bit of surprise in the Newcastle side today to face Chelsea, as Peter Lovenkrands has been drafted in to replace the suspended Jonas Gutierrez, and Sammy Ameobi is on the bench.


And that’s the only enforced change from the team that started against Manchester United last Saturday, and miraculously came away with a well earned point.

It had been expected that young Sammy Ameobi would be a straight replacement for Jonas, but Peter must have been impressive in training this week,  and the experienced Danish International striker gets the nod.

Danny Guthrie will again deputize for the still injured Cheick Tiote, and Danny will need to be at his best to try to win over the midfield for Newcastle against a top Chelsea side.

Leon Best is fit again and takes his place on the bench, and he’s likely to see some action in the second half today in front of a capacity crowd. Steve Harper is back on the bench for Newcastle after completing his one month loan spell at Brighton.

For Chelsea Daniel Sturridge and Dider Drogba start up front for the Pensioners, and captain John Terry and Frank Lampard also start.

The London side will be going all out for the win today, after losing three of their last five league games, and a win will put them back into 4th position in the table and above Newcastle.

Howay The Lads!!

Newcastle United (4-4-1-1): Tim Krul; Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Ryan Taylor; Gabriel Obertan, Yohan Cabaye, Danny Guthrie, Peter Lovenkrands; Hatem Ben Arfa; Demba Ba

    Strange to see that… How did it happen than so a loved man feel alone enough to kill himself.

    I know it is very difficult but i think that the players should really try and not get emotional today. Keep their cool.

    Even Radio 5 agrees:

    1255: Former England defender Danny Mills on BBC 5 live: “That had to be a red card for David Luiz, by the letter of the law. Was he denying a goal-scoring opportunity? You don’t get more of an opportunity than one-on-one with Petr Cech! It’s a blatant red card.”

    The referee is having a nightmare.

    1. Luis should have been off – blatant red
    2. HTF does he then give a penalty at the other end – disgrace, absolute bloody disgrace

    Have to say top class save from Krul.

    New idea for half time entertainment, taking the ref’s out and executing them in the centre circle
