Newcastle team v Spurs features 4 changes including Sissoko, Riviere, Cabella

6 years ago

Alan Pardew makes 4 changes for his Newcastle team v Spurs.

Against both Crystal Palace and Manchester City in each of the last two rounds, the United boss had made six changes from the previous match in the league.

As expected Moussa Sissoko returns after suspension while Daryl Janmaat is an enforced change due to picking up a fifth booking of the season against the Gunners on Saturday.

Against Arsenal Newcastle lined up with;

Alnwick, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett, Tiote, Colback, Gouffran, Ameobi, Perez, Cisse

For their North London neighbours Tottenham the team selection is;

Alnwick, Dummett, Coloccini, Williamson, Haidara, Sissoko, Colback, Gouffran, Cabella, Perez, Riviere

On the subs bench United have;

Woodman, Satka, Streete, Anita, Roberts, Vuckic, Armstrong

With the exception of Anita, the bench contains almost zero experience, certainly in the Premier League. Armstrong and Vuckic have little bits of first team experience but the other four don’t have a single minute between them.

No sign of Cisse, Tiote or Sammy Ameobi who all started against Arsenal, while Steven Taylor doesn’t feature even though his suspension is served.
