Pardew Goes With Experience In Line-Up
The starting eleven, led by the returning Fabricio Coloccin,i to take on Stoke are;
Krul, Simpson, Coloccini, Williamson, Santon, Anita, Tiote, Perch, Jonas, Cisse, Ba
The manager deciding to add James Perch to give the midfield a more solid feel.
The suggestion is that it is a 4-4-2 which must surely see Jonas and Anita out wide, unless there is some hidden tactic such as playing Davide Santon further forward.
The bench is;
Elliot, Tavernier, Ferguson, Bigirimana, Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Ranger
So apart from Perch available again, none of the injured list have been able to make it. While for Stoke, Michael Owen’s return from injury hasn’t come in time to even make the bench.
