This is the lineup we think Steve Bruce will go with tomorrow against Bournemouth at St James Park. It is an unchanged team from the win at West Ham last weekend.
We are fairly confident that tomorrow will not yield any surprises in the team selection. The same four players ruled out last week will again be unavailable for this week. They are Matt Ritchie, Fabian Schar, Florian Lejeune, and the suspended Sean Longstaff.
Newcastle had their best all-around performance of the season at West Ham, so it just makes sense that the same players will stay in the team.
This is an important match for Newcastle just before the international break. Two wins on the trot will do wonders for the lads at this stage. It could also see Newcastle rise significantly in the standings.
After the break, Newcastle will have nine games between November 25th and January 1st. Going into that stretch in a good position in the league could prove to be crucial.
The substitutes bench will most likely be the same as well. The only change we could see is Manquillo in for Emil Krafth due to the pending birth of his third child.
Darlow, Krafth, Dummett, M. Longstaff, Atsu, Gayle, Carroll
