Rafa has just announced his side for the game against an in-form Burnley side at St. James’ Park tonight.
There’s one change with Javier Manquillo getting the green light and he comes in for DeAndre Yedlin who is on the bench.
That’s a strange change but maybe Javier’s looked good in training.
In our team for tonight, we had an unchanged side from last Saturday – so fairly close.

Javier Manquillo – gets a start tonight
Rafa knows this game will be a tough one and he had this to say at his press conference yesterday afternoon.
“We know they will be physical and tough. Burnley will be a different challenge for us.”
“We did well at this stage last year and we know how difficult Burnley will be.” “We approach this game with no complacency.”
“We had control against Huddersfield, which is not just about possession, and we created chances.”
“I hope we can do that again and carry on”
Two in three fans think we can win this game tonight.
Howay The Lads!!
