Predicted Newcastle team v Chelsea

6 years ago

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

Unless Aleksandar Mitrovic has a broken leg, actually – make that two broken legs, he will be facing Chelsea on Saturday teatime.

With only three goals in six Premier League matches and struggling to even create chances, United need a fresh approach when it comes to tehir attacking play.

I think Steve McClaren must surely see that one isolated striker is not the answer and even though it is Chelsea, I predict a pairing of Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez up front.

The Spaniard has been one of the very few in form and it will be an appalling decision by the Head Coach if he leaves him out.

One player I do expect to be on the bench is Florian Thauvin, he desperately needs to be taken out of the firing line and hopefully will kick on again as an impact sub if called upon tomorrow.

Georginio Wijnaldum has said that he’d prefer to play further forward and McClaren could/should get the former PSV midfielder into an advanced position, Wijnaldum having grabbed 18 goals last season in Holland.

If all available the defence picks itself, whilst Colback, Anita and Sissoko will all have to lift their games if they are to contend with the blues tomorrow.

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