Rafa Benitez has been talking in the lead-in to the game tonight against Burnley that he may have to make some changes in the side.
But the team is quite young, and we have a feeling Rafa may stay with the same team that did so well against Huddersfield on Saturday.
While it was only 2-0 against a 10 man Huddersfield with a little luck, it could have been a much better win, and we hit the woodwork four times.
So we are going with an unchanged side with Rafa willing to make three early changes in the second half to use his bench if that’s necessary.
Our next game is on Saturday at the Hammers with a late 5:30 pm kickoff time.
Sean Longstaff expected to start again tonight
So here’s the team we think Rafa will start tonight in a 3-4-3 formation.

Yedlin Longstaff Hayden Ritchie

What would your team be for tonight?
If Rafa does make changes we could see Ki come in for Hayden in the holding midfield position and Atsu could also get a start.
If we have some luck tonight, we could score some goals, and a fourth successive home win would be just terrific.
Two-thirds of fans think we can win this game.
