Hull v Newcastle
Saturday 31 January 12.45pm Live on BT Sport
I think John Carver may well try his best to put out a ‘crowd pleasing’ Newcastle team v Hull this afternoon.
Papiss Cisse will be on the bench at best surely after the trip back from Africa.
However, a player who should have been there, Mehdi Abeid, I can see getting his chance to show his promising displays before getting injured were no fluke.
Cabella looks certain to continue supporting Ayoze Perez and hopefully a bit more attacking intent will see United impose themselves just as they did last time here, though without the headbutts…
Dummett’s injury, Mapou’s permanent sale and no investment on a replacement centre-back means Williamson will be sure to start, while at left-back it looks a straight choice between Haidara and Santon with the Italian being my fancy to get the nod.
