Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Liverpool?
Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons are back in training but according to John Carver Spurs is the very earliest they will be available.

The players to choose from is no different to the monstrosity that was the Sunderland display but according to quotes from the Newcastle Head Coach, he will make changes from that derby defeat, with this pool of players all that he has seemingly to choose from:
Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Gouffran, Ameobi, Cabella, Perez, Gutierrez, Armstrong, Elliot, Obertan, Riviere, Satka, Kemen, Abeid
Carver has hinted at changes in positions as well as in personnel and surely Jack Colback will be restored to midfield as he is wasted at full-back.
Mehdi Abeid must be given a chance, whilst with the likes of Gouffran and Cabella having shockers, Riviere and Obertan come into the equation, even though they have done nothing to justify a place.
All a bit depressing but every player has to show pride in playing for Newcastle United or else they deserve every scrap of criticism that comes their way.
I predict the line-up and formation below and hope that they can all raise their game, otherewise we are in for anothher long long 90 minutes.
