We put out the team yesterday that we thought would start today’s game against former Premier League Champions Leicester City at St. James’ Park.
But then we found from an exclusive in the Mail out that both Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez are injured and cannot play.
So the question becomes who can play in their place today?
Ciaran Clark – likely to start today in place of the injured Fernandez
Fabian Schar and Ciaran Clark are ready to replace the Argentine center back and probably Clark will get the start because of his extra experience in the Premier League.
As for left back, we don’t have many fullbacks, and it looks like Javier Manquillo will start in place of Dummett, although he prefers to play on the other side.
So this would be our updated team for today:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Clark Manquillo
Ritchie Perez Kenedy
What would your team be for today?
