Atsu, Manquillo, And Shelvey Start Against Brighton – Carroll And Saint-Maximin On Bench

This is the side that Steve Bruce has just announced for the match today. It features just one change from Liverpool with Javier Manquillo coming in at right-back for Emil Krafth.

The bench is much stronger in attacking options as Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin make the match-day squad. It looks like the formation will be a 5-4-1 or 3-4-3. Jonjo Shelvey also gets a second straight start for the injured Sean Longstaff. This game should suit him much better than away to Liverpool.

Depending on how the game unfolds, we could see the return of Andy Carroll in the black and white stripes. What a moment that will be for the local lad. Also we could get to see new signing Allan Saint-Maximin who has only featured for 40 minutes this season due to his hamstring injury.

This is the team that Brighton will send out to face the lads.

This is massive for the lads. It has the potential to be a scriptwriters dream if Andy comes on and finds the back of the net.

Howay The Lads!

    Irish Rob,
    Ki did what we wanted. A simple forward pass to keep the attacking threat going.

    We do not want a long hopeful pass that reaches no one and ended our attacking threat.

    Worst is that the ball will be pick up played through the back and end at our box.
