Burn, Longstaff, And Wilson Start At Southampton In Unchanged Team



This is the team Eddie Howe has named for tonight’s cup semi-final at Southampton. It is an unchanged side from the scoreless draw at Crystal Palace over the weekend.


Howe has opted to not make any changes once again. He’ll have Allan Saint-Maximin and Alexander Isak in reserve for the second half. Karl Darlow gets the nod as the backup despite his potential exit later this month.

Here is who Nathan Jones will send out for the Saints with local lad Adam Armstrong on the bench.

Despite this only being the first leg, it’ll be a nervous night for Newcastle fans. This is the first cup semi-final in close to two decades. The priority tonight is to set up a comfortable second leg at St. James’ Park in one week.

Howay The Lads!

    Surely we have them over 180 mins. Incompetent refs aside. We are creating loads.

    Now JWP a golden opportunity to score from a dangerous freekick that never was.

    The refs are so corrupt or incompetent it’s ridiculous.

    Wilson very very quiet again. I’ll be incredulous if it takes Howe as long to bring on Isak this time.

    Longstaff tries so hard. He’s twice the player he was a year ago. Still not good enough though.

    Decent performance.

    Finishing is woeful as normal.

    Burn and Wilson offit.

    Rest are right at it. Midfield is superb.

    Subs will win it for us. Our midfield should score more, which is a shame as general play is good.

    Southampton have been very naive defensively. Newcastle poor in the final third.. Haven’t taken advantage

    Willock and Wilson off, Isak and maxi on shortly I’d guess

    Joelinton still the best player as he has been for the last 5-6 games

    Rob Green saying it was a goal. VAR is pathetic. Eddie will get them revved up for second half.
