Predicted Newcastle Team For Crystal Palace

Rafa said yesterday during his press conference for the game today against Crystal Palace that one or two players had some knocks.

They included both central midfield players Diame and Hayden.

So they could miss out today, but the main selection that Rafa needs to make is who makes way for Fabian Schar who is now ft again.

Maybe Rafa will not do this, but we think the Swiss International could come in for captain Jamaal Lascelles.

Fabian Schar – should start today

So this could be the side (in a 3-4-3 formation) for today with only one change from the team that started at Arsenal.

Yedlin Hayden Diame Richie
Perez Rondon Almiron

If there are doubts about Diame and Hayden and they cannot play – we could see Jonjo Shelvey start the game.

And Fabian Schar could even come into the side in defensive midfield in place of Diame.

Yedlin is another player who has a knock and could be doubtful for this game.

What would your team be for this afternoon?

    I don’t like two defensive midfielders in midfield. No thanks.

    Not for me did not work Monday no creativity in midfield with Diame and Hayden and with Ritchie playing half back

    Need a functional midfield that links defence and attack

    Bring in Shelvey and Ki

    To be honest I don’t mind who plays as long as the team playing in Black & White stripes comes away with another three points at when the ref blows his full time whistle.

    Although I would like to see what Shelvey can provide for Almiron!

    I’d also like to Almiron get his first goal(s) for wor team!

    Would have thought this game was made for Shelvey. Schar I am a fan and could see Mannikin in for Yedders if he has a knock. As Always I will place faith in Rafa. HWTL

    Well at least we can object to a potential team choice now and disagree with rafa, without having Jail screaming.
