We expect there to be another great upheaval to the Newcastle squad for Saturday’s match against Manchester City. Just like the match against Manchester United, which came after the dreadful Leicester City display, the lads are in need of redemption this weekend.
The match against Manchester United saw Steve Bruce make five changes to the team as he handed Matty Longstaff, Ciaran Clark, and DeAndre Yedlin their first starts of the season.
We don’t think Bruce will quite reach that level of change. However, we expect there to be some changes in the team. We could see Fabian Schar and Sean Longstaff return after missing out over the past month – Fabian with his knee injury and Sean with his red card suspension.
There is also Florian Lejeune, who did not make the trip to Aston Villa on Monday despite being declared available for selection. He may come into the reckoning against Manchester City this weekend.
Whatever the result, we need to see a reaction against a dangerous Manchester City team. We are not expecting a result, but we want to see a vastly improved performance from the one at Aston Villa.
