It looks like Steve Bruce will use the same 3-5-2 formation that he has implemented during pre-season. Joelinton will make his debut in front of the crowd at St James Park. Our new number 9 will lead the line with Almiron behind him.
Paul Dummett comes into the team to man the left hand side of the back three. Matt Ritchie has also been declared fit enough to make the start at left wing-back.
New signings Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems, and Emil Krafth will all be on the bench to start the match.
This is a big match for the lads and let’s hope they can get 3 points on Steve Bruce’s debut. We have lost twelve of the last thirteen against Arsenal so we want to see them turn it around today.
Howay The Lads!
