Ben Arfa Out Shola In As Pardew Names Newcastle Starting Line-Up

8 years ago

Newcastle United v Chelsea
Saturday 2 November 12.45pm Live On BT Sport

Alan Pardew left out Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye on Wednesday but both are predictably included today in the following line-up.

Krul, Debuchy, Mapou, Williamson, Santon, Tiote, Sissoko, Cabaye, Gouffran, Shola, Remy

One surprise of course is a missing Hatem Ben Arfa, who despite his poor recent form would have been assumed to be a likely starter.

Instead it looks like we are going more route one with Shola Ameobi named instead, I don’t think he will be described as a ‘false 9’ although there again..

On a bench which includes both Ben Arfa and Cisse we have;

Elliot, Tavernier, Obertan, Sammy Ameobi, Ben Arfa, Anita,  Cisse

Betting – NUFC To Win 9/2 – Cabaye Man Of The Match 10/1 – First NUFC Scorer Loi Remy 10/3
