Joelinton, Krafth, And Shelvey Get Starts At Manchester United



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for tonight’s match at Old Trafford against Manchester United. It has just one change from the defeat at Chelsea with Joelinton coming in for Dwight Gayle.

It appears that Bruce will stick with the 4-3-3 formation that he’s used over the past four matches. That didn’t suit Dwight Gayle, who’s basically a poacher, so it’s Joelinton in for him.

Newcastle need Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron, and Joe Willock to pose more of a threat than at Chelsea. Likewise, the backline will need to be solid against this lethal Red Devils attack.

The bench is a decent one attack-wise but there are few options in defense. It’s a shame that Matty Longstaff doesn’t even make the squad for this one.

Here is who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has selected for the hosts.

If there was ever a time to put in a heroic display, tonight is the night. Newcastle are just 3 points out of the relegation places with Fulham rising from the depths to pull back 7 points in just over a week.

Now is the time for players to step up and show some passion for the shirt. That has to happen as soon as Paul Tierney blows his whistle. None of this passive nonsense from last week. It’s do-or-die time for Newcastle United.

Howay The Lads!

    Bruce pre match team talk

    “Right lads, this in Manutd we’re playing, they’ve won a lot of stuff over the years and they are currently second so there’s not a chance we can win or even draw here. Let’s just go out there and fanny about a bit and move on to the next match”

    I have found this site very good for streams recently. Better quality than Hesgoal.

    Can’t watch the game for the first time in who knows how long, stuck in the hospital. If we manage a win tonight I’ll have to sit out the rest of the games this season.

    @Mund – Jacobs said it is still £305 million despite the claims online that it has increased.

    I fear for tonight. Weak fullbacks, a slow midfielder and a tree trunk as our front striker! I will come on later to eat humble pie, but this is another team who are superior to us.

    Rom,

    Thanks Rom, took a kick off one of the horses and it’s shook something up in my back. Can’t take any risks after breaking it before and I just lost all strength, couldn’t get my legs back under me. Feeling better now but getting scans and all that good stuff.
