Rafa will have a few decisions to make for the team he will start tonight against his former club – high flying Liverpool.
Shelvey was brought into the side last week at Brighton, and he played quite well.
Rafa will want to defend solidly tonight, but we also need to score to win the game so we will see Newcastle again on the counter-attack.
The good news is that Ayoze Perez is fit to play and Jamaal Lascelles will return to lead the side.
Ki Sung-yueng – could start tonight
This could be the team Rafa starts tonight against his former club in a 3-4-3 formation:
Schar Lascelles (c) Dummett
Manquillo Ki Hayden Ritchie
Perez Rondon Atsu
Shelvey could keep his place in the side, but maybe Rafa wants the more defensive minded Ki to partner Isaac Hayden in central midfield.
What would your team be for tonight?
