Newcastle team vs Tottenham sees only 3 survivors from last season’s win

Only three survivors from last year’s win make it into the Newcastle team vs Tottenham this afternoon, in the shape of Tim Krul, Moussa Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran.

Players sold, loaned out and injured mean that United have the following eleven out on starting duty at White Hart Lane:

Krul, Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett, Sissoko, Anita, Colback, Obertan, Perez, Gouffran

This compares to last season’s eleven of;

Krul

Debuchy

Mapou

Williamson

Santon

Sissoko

Tiote

Cabaye

Gouffran

Shola

Remy 

Needless to say this afternoon could be a long one unless a lot of players rise to the occasion.

The likes of Gouffran, Coloccini, Sissoko, Anita and others have to show far more than they have so far and encourage Perez to sparkle on his first Premier League start.

On the bench United have;

Elliot, Haidara, Ryan Taylor, Adam Armstrong, Remy Cabella, Facundo Ferreyra, Sammy Ameobi

Great to see Ryan Taylor involved again for his sake but surely they won’t throw him into this after so little preparation, while could this be the day when we at last see loan sensation Facundo Ferreyra?
