Almiron, Ritchie, And Wilson Get Starts Against Arsenal



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for this afternoon’s match against Arsenal. It has one change from the draw at Anfield with Callum Wilson back in the starting eleven.

Newcastle Starting XI: Dubravka, Murphy, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Shelvey, S Longstaff, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson

Subs: Gillespie, Schar, Anderson, Joelinton, Gayle, Lewis, Hendrick, Krafth, M Longstaff

Bruce pulls no surprises with his team selection this afternoon. He’s selected a very strong team with Wilson back in for Joelinton.

Andy Carroll and Javier Manquillo are surprise commissions in the squad. Both Elliot Anderson and Matty Longstaff return to the bench for just the second time since February.

Here is who Mikel Arteta for the Gunners with Alexandre Lacazette and Kiernan Tierney ruled out.

Arsenal Starting XI: Ryan, Bellerin, David Luiz, Gabriel, Xhaka, Elneny, Ceballos, Willian, Odegaard, Martinelli, Aubameyang

Subs: Leno, Mari, Chambers, Cedric, Partey, Smith Rowe, Saka, Pepe, Nketiah

Newcastle have an outstanding opportunity to practically clinch safety with a win today. Arsenal have little to play for domestically with a big match in the Europa League on the horizon.

Let’s hope Newcastle can continue with the good performances and keep our unbeaten run alive. Keeping this consistency down the stretch while avoiding any massive pitfalls could see us finish this topsy-turvy season on this rise.

Howay The Lads!

    The Prince`s
    Mate

    Good day fella, i trust your very well. I totally agree we have indeed been chasing shadows for the last 13 years, it would be amazing if we could see the dark depressing shadow of Ashley leaving Newcastle for the last time mate.

    Jane your spot on with your post, this is basically Arsenal`s second team which makes our gutless performance so far even more difficult to except.
