Predicted Newcastle team v Leicester

6 years ago

Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Leicester?

Sissoko is back from suspension and Papiss Cisse out of suspension, though it has been revealed the striker is still receiving treatment and hasn’t joined in with full training yet.

Elsewhere, Paul Dummett is ‘back in the group’ according to John Carver but surely with not a single practice/reserve match he won’t make the starting 11?

Both Siem de Jong and John Carver have said that the Dutch midfielder won’t be in the starting line-up, though he should come off the bench.

Whilst as usual we wonder if we will ever see the mysterious Facundo Ferreyra, who made his latest reserve appearance on Tuesday at Derby.

Rather bizarrely, when John Carver met two fans today, he told them that Yoan Gouffran wouldn’t be in the team against Leicester.

Looks like the following are the choices available to fill the eleven shirts on Saturday at the King Power stadium:

Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Dummett, Anita, Coloccini, Gouffran, Ameobi, Cabella, Perez, Gutierrez, Armstrong, Woodman, Obertan, Sissoko, Riviere, Satka, Kemen, Abeid, de Jong and Ferreyra.

I predict the line-up and formation below, can Sissoko come back in and make a difference?

To create the image above I used the NUFC team selector.
