Lejeune, Manquillo, And Muto All Start Against The Foxes


This is the team Bruce has selected for the match today against Leicester City. As usual, we were way off in our prediction. To think we had Kelland Watts in the starting eleven, and he hasn’t even made the squad.

It’s just two changes from Everton with the surprise selection of Yoshinori Muto, who comes in for Andy Carroll. Javier Manquillo resumes his role at right wing-back.

Bruce is going to go with Florian Lejeune in the back three after his struggles this past weekend. Joelinton and Fabian Schar also shake off knocks to keep their place.

This is the starting eleven that Brendan Rodgers has decided on. It’s the third start for former Magpie Ayoze Perez against us. But there’s no Jamie Vardy to be found, which is good news.

The Foxes sit in second place in the Premier League while Newcastle are in 11th. A loss today could really see us tumble down the table, but it is what it is.

A good performance is expected, especially taking into consideration what happened in the away fixture earlier this year. Hopefully, we’ll get a pleasant surprise, and the lads can start 2020 on the right foot.

Howay The Lads!

    Was actually a very good save the Joelinton chance, I thought he fluffed it originally

    Good grief. Leicester don’t seem like they have got out of 2nd gear yet either.

    I repeat:

    Lejeune is done at this level.

    He has been an absolute liability on his return. Rather go to a back 4.

    Get Lejeune off the pitch and sell him to a French amateur team. Don;t want to see him in the B&W again.

    Unbelievable how sloppy and disorganised we are. At this rate FCB will have to give another 20k season tickets away.
