The long boring two-week International break is finally over, and the Premier League gets underway again today.
Newcastle will be at Southampton tomorrow and St. Mary’s isn’t exactly a happy hunting ground for us, and we have lost the last three games there.
But it would be a good time to get a win and if we can do that it will take us to 13 points from the first 8 games and that would be quite good.
Chancel Mbemba – could start at left-back
As far as the team for Sunday we played well against Liverpool at home in the 1-1 draw, so we don’t think there will be a lot of changes on the side.
Here’s how we think Newcastle will line up against Southampton on Sunday:
Andrade Lascelles (c) Clark Mbemba
Ritchie Perez Atsu
That’s only one change from the side that started at home to Liverpool with Chancel Mbemba returning at left-back in place of Javier Manquillo.
There is a possibility Rafa may rest some players who were involved for their countries during the International break and maybe it’s time to give Florian Lejeune another chance at center-back in place of Ciaran Clark?
What would your team be for Sunday?
