NEWCASTLE (H) WED APRIL 6TH 8PM
Seems like i am on a 4 game unbeaten run ,I dont expect all the credit however a bit of love would be nice.Next up pesky Newcastle .Not sure this is a must win ,Perhaps a must not loose However a win and 3 more points would do my heart a lot of good .Oh by the way i dont want to see Antonio and Wilson hugging it out in the middle of the pitch
Trippier Schar Botman Burns
Longstaff Guimaraes Willock
Murphy Isak Saint-Maximin
Willock had to go off against Man Utd but in the post-match Howe wasn't sure if it was a hamstring injury or just cramp.
If it is serious then the most likely replacement is Joelinton who picked up a 2-match ban for a 10th yellow card against Man City and came on for Saint-Maximin yesterday after they'd gone a goal up.
On the plus side Howe reckons top scorer Miguel Almiron won't be back for another four weeks
A draw would be nice
At this stage of our season the results are much more important than the performances, so another scrappy 1-0 win would be good, but I can't see anything other than a Newcastle win.
PL away P13 W5 D6 L2
Plus we've not lost at home this year
Bournemouth v Brighton
Leicester v Villa
All on Tuesday. So we could be back to 17th come Wednesday. We will definitely drop to 15th.
Hopefully a draw & two away wins.
Kehrer - Zouma - Aguerd - Emerson
Paqueta - Rice
Bowen - Benrahma - Cornet
Areola, Ogbonna, Coufal, Cresswell, Downes, Soucek, Fornals, Lanzini, Antonio
I don’t mind Antonio starting but we’d need one of his ‘unplayable’ games & that’s always a gamble if that version of him will turn up.
