Sean Longstaff, Gayle, Murphy, And Ritchie Get Starts Against Spurs



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for this afternoon’s match against Spurs at St. James’ Park. It has five changes from the 3-0 defeat at Brighton.

It looks like Bruce has made some wholesale changes and is possibly reverting to five at the back. He’s also handed Jacob Murphy, Sean Longstaff, and Matt Ritchie rare starts. Dwight Gayle gets another shot after Bruce confirmed he is in talks for a new contract.

It’s great to see both Matty Longstaff and Elliot Anderson back in the squad along with Allan Saint-Maximin. It is a surprise that Ryan Fraser and Federico Fernandez were both left out.

Here is who Jose Mourinho will send out for the visitors.

Newcastle put themselves at risk of a place in the bottom three without a win today. Fulham are just two points adrift and take on Aston Villa after today’s match.

A reaction from last time out at Brighton is mandatory but with no wins in the last six, we’ll take one anyway we can get it. Hopefully, all these changes will make a difference.

Howay The Lads!

    Gayle there, attacking the cross in – Joelinton just stands still hoping it might hit him on the head and go in.

    I’m genuinely better than Joelinton and I’m in my early 30s and haven’t played for 10 years.

    The man is the most predictable lummox I’ve ever seen at this level of football.

    I hope ASM doesn’t have to come, it would mean we’ve done okay.

    Joelinton gets worse every game. He literally has nothing to offer, terrible scouting!
    He’s got no pace, no technique, no passing skills, no dribbling skills, no vision, no work rate, no finishing instinct, no hold up play, no defensive qualities,…
    40m seems like a fair price

    Gayle is great at sniffing out chances, but he just can’t put them away regularly as he should.

    Being in and out of the team can’t help him get in that groove.

    At least a proper ST is on the pitch. The disparity in instinct between him and Joelinton is stark. Only thicko Bruce knows why he hasn’t played more in Wilson’s absence.
