Jetro Willems And The Longstaff Brothers Start At Manchester United


This is the team that Steve Bruce has chosen to take on Manchester United. It is a Christmas miracle as we got the team selection right for once. 🙂

As we had all been hoping, Jetro Willems is back in the team. Florian Lejeune gets his second straight start, but Bruce had limited options with the other three center-backs out injured.

The big surprise is that the Longstaff brothers get the nod in midfield for Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey. Though we had a feeling he would do just that.

It looks like the same formation as last weekend against Crystal Palace. However, it’s Joelinton and Dwight Gayle as the front two with Dwight getting his first start of the season.

This is who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has selected to face the Magpies. Paul Pogba just makes the bench, which is a welcome surprise.

This is a chance for Newcastle to continue their march up the Premier League table. With a win, we can leap Manchester United and get closer to a coveted top five place. But that may be putting the cart before the horse.

However, this is certainly a game we can get something from if the lads put in a performance. It won’t be easy as Man U will want to atone for the loss at Watford last weekend. But we’ve beaten them once already, and Bruce will have the team believing they can do it once again.

Howay The Lads!

    Poor decisions from both Willems and Almiron there. Got to do better.

    Gayle did well and played the right pass.

    Joelinton started really well. Kept counter going with good pass to almiron and ran in the box. Then set Gayle through 1 on 1 after a good run through defenders. Then good run, strength and composure to set up Matty.

    Great first touch and finish by the lad too!

    Those were two exquisite assists

    Not just battling from Joelington
    he waltzed his way through a sea of defenders with finesse and skill
    He is a Top notch footballer

    Dubravka has too many mistakes in him for me.

    Just another Krul there, can’t get down into the corners. Poor.
