Predicted Newcastle Starting Eleven Against Huddersfield

It’s difficult to know which team Rafa will start against Huddersfield this afternoon with all players available except Rob Elliot and Ciaran Clark.

New signing Miguel Almiron will take some part in the game, and we are picking him to start the game.

Rafa is likely to play only four at the back so one of the three center backs of Lascelles, Schar, and Lejeune will likely not start the game.

We also include Ayoze Perez who by all accounts has been impressive in training since Miguel Almiron arrived on the scene.

Miguel Almiron – could start today

This is a potential team that Rafa could start today, and we include local lad Paul Dummett at left-back.

This is a massive game for the Magpies and anything but a win will be an enormous disappointment.

What team would you start today?

    Almiron to play a blinder n come off at 70mins to a standing ovation replaced by Perez, who will go on to score.

    You have to realise (Rafa certainly will)
    that although he has trained hard , played
    45 minutes in a friendly , and come on as a late
    sub – Miggy is nowhere near completely match-fit.
    Huddersfield , fresh , will be more than a match for him.
    He will be best used as an impact player when the Terriers are tiring

    Match day hurray. On tv over here. Great sports weekend as jib said. Limerick v Cork in the hurling means might miss Ireland Rugby though :(. My son has just turned into a hurler 🙂

    Thanks Jib…. Great thing about South Africa we see all the games live on the different DSTV channels, so obviously the Toon are the first to watch with Goal Rush being flashed from other matches if and when goals are scored.
