Howe Makes Lone Change In Our Predicted Team For Palace Despite Bruno Revelation



Newcastle are back at it tomorrow evening with a tough match at Crystal Palace. Eddie Howe will likely alter his preferred eleven despite the revelation Bruno will be available.

Craig Hope is reporting on Twitter that the influential midfielder has recovered enough to make the trip to Selhurst Park which is outstanding news. Though Howe will most likely proceed with caution and save him as an impact sub.

Joelinton will likely slot into the midfield three with Sean Longstaff sitting deep. Howe’s decision could be down to starting either Allan Saint-Maximin or Alexander Isak with a potential change of shape.

I suspect Howe will go with Saint-Maximin in the familiar 4-3-3. The Frenchman was an automatic starter prior to his hamstring injury in August. Howe initially went with Saint-Maximin after Bruno’s removal against Fulham.

This is the team I am predicting Howe will name tomorrow with the lone, somewhat forced change. Isak and Guimaraes can potentially get a lengthy cameo depending on how the night unfolds.


Howe did throw out a scenario during his press conference this morning which alluded to Isak playing on the left. Howe stated Alex’s versatility was a primary factor in his capture and that he can play on the left; though he admitted it wasn’t his best position.

Returning Saint-Maximin back to the starting eleven could reignite the Frenchman, who hasn’t had much of an impact since returning from his injury. A league start could be just what he needs to rediscover his form, which would be a timely boost for the second half of the season.

    Magic, you are correct on every level. Everton do tend to escape but I am not sure they will this time. Of course I was watching the snooker.

    I was watching the snooker myself last week mate, i must say some brilliant matches and really superb snooker, i was rooting for Mark Williams to win specially as he is an nice bloke and also as he is the senior member in snooker now along with John Higgins.

    There is also the asthma conspiracy theory, that was circulating regarding Liverpool, to consider.
    Liverpool supposedly had a high percentage of their players diagnosed with asthma. This allowed Salbutamol to be prescribed as treatment. This is a banned substance, unless required for medicinal reasons, which can improve stamina.
    It is alleged 63% of Liverpool’s squad had asthma and were being treated for it.

    Arsenal have been in the top division since 1919. Incidentally the did not win promotion via their league position but were promoted by election.
    They were relegated in 1913. There was obviously the war in between and Arsenal were elected back in to the 1st division upon the resumption of the league after the war.
