Joelinton, Krafth, And Lascelles Start For Newcastle Against Manchester United



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for tonight’s Manchester United match. It has just one change from the win over Burnley with Jamaal Lascelles back from injury.

Bruce has rewarded the players who did so well against Burnley two weeks ago and keeps with practically the same team.

Here is who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will send out for the visitors.

Newcastle are on a run of good results and coming off an excellent performance against Burnley. A win tonight will move us into the top four and above Liverpool on goal difference. Even a draw will temporarily edge us into the top six.

We need to show consistency and another good performance at home is a must. Manchester United are vulnerable defensively and Newcastle can hopefully take advantage of that tonight.

Howay The Lads!

    Mata starting is a bit unexpected. He has a tendency to drift centrally so it could end up very congested in the middle of the park. If we are in a 442 I think we could really struggle with the amount of bodies they’ll have in midfield.

    Does Ole not want to win this game? What an awful line up. (BBC: fan’s comment)

    Hardly rewarding them, to stubborn to see whats blatantly obvious.

    Poor selection from Bruce, shows his unwillingness to adapt or change.

    Burnley was more luck than judgement, his obsession with Shelvey in midfield and Hendricks on the wing to cover him will be our undoing.

    We’ll be lucky to get a point.

    Bit miffed with that team if I am honest

    Jail

    I had some oranjeeboom a couple of weeks ago as a blast from the past

    There used to be a pub near me did it on draft one blue one black I think I was drinking black I think any way we were there for a darts match not my game but they were short and drafted me in from the pool team
    Our team had one and they threw me on last as it didn’t matter I was trollied I still had 200 odd and bloke was on his double he missed it a couple of times I managed to check out 120 something to win

    That Man U team is there for the taking – no Martial, Pogba etc.

    we should be attacking them, no “top 6” team is invincible, especially not this season as they are all conceding goals left, right and centre.

    Almiron and/or Fraser should be starting imo, use pace to get at Lindelof and Maguire in particular.

    Happy that ASM is on the right, think he will get more out of Shaw than AWB.

    hoping for a performance, think it will be 3-1 but not sure which way as of yet……..

    wont get on Brucey’s back just yet about the lineup but please just attack though. Attitude is the key, be positive and pressure them and chances will come.

    HWTL.

    Brucies tactics:

    Are they in the top 16? If yes then park the bus and go 541

    If the team are the bottom 4 then lets get really creative and go 442, yayyyy lol.

    Two of our most dangerous players on the bench and Hendricks had a mare last week for his country.

    We should be pressing harrying and all over these with pace, instead we have the Humam handbrake Shelvey and his dogs body Hendricks instead.

    I hope me slagging them off makes them have a blinder, won’t hold my breath.

    Joelinton will be man of the match as he will produce figures of no assists, no goals, no tackles or passes, because he now runs around a bit more than he used to.
    Alot of people are easily pleased on this site.

    Can see Frazer, Miggy and Schaar coming off the bench at some point in game.

    Manquillo should probably have started.

    Hendriks !!!! Miggy can’t be happy
    Manure are a long way from a top six team at the moment, need to attack from the off as that defence is awful, if we sit back we’ll be beaten

    Looks like the strategy is playing shin-pad lucky ball, with Hendrick and Joelinton starting. The old ‘rub of the green’ tactic, you never know…

    I’m a little surprised by the team, although that side did play well (for the most part) against Burnley. Almiron was never likely to be included after travelling from South America & Lascelles was always likely to return.

    But didn’t expect Hendrick in there. #NUFC #MUFC #NEWMUN

    It must be written in Joelintons contract that he has to play every game !!! We play with 10 men every time he starts, he offers absolutely nothing. Also think ASM should be played alongside Calum Wilson, this pair up front would terrify defenders.

    How in the name of God is Joelinton starting ahead of Ryan Frazer or Almiron, is Bruce having an affair with Joelinton or what, you can bet your life when the Man Utd defenders look at our team sheet they will be delighted they are up against Joelinton as opposed to Frazer or Almiron.
