Almiron's Vori Vori Vajigel Lovers v Burnley

Recommended Posts

Newcastle go in search of a fourth successive home league victory this evening when Burnley visit St. James' Park this evening.  It's an 8pm kick-off live on BT Sport, altered from the original 7.45pm start on the Wednesday.
Following on from a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor in November, the Magpies are looking to complete a first league double over Burnley since the 1954/55 season.
NUFC: There are no new injury problems for Rafa Benitez following Saturday's victory over Huddersfield with Ciaran Clark still missing.
However Jonjo Shelvey could be in contention for a recall after recovering from injury.

The Clarets defeated Spurs 2-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday to make it eight games unbeaten in the PL (five wins and three draws) since a 1-5 home loss to Everton on Boxing Day. Peter Crouch has played just once for Burnley since arriving in the January transfer window, a 14 minute substitute appearance. The 38 year-old scored his first goal against us way back in 2001 for Aston Villa and has also netted for Southampton, Liverpool and Stoke City in the PL when facing Newcastle (failing to do so when coming up against us for Portsmouth and Spurs).

 

Stats:

Do you expect any change in the XI very typical in this midweeks matchs?

With everyone back and fit, it would be welcome to have a bench that doesn’t have Manquillo or Joselu on it when Barreca and Muto are there to call on.

 

I agree but expect to see them on the bench. Quite what the point of signing a player on loan that doesn't make the squad is, I'm not sure, but can understand Rafa not wanting to mess with the existing cohesion.

 

....that said, it's a short turn around so this is where it would be logical to call on squad depth... #RayvinHedge

I won't publish my proposed starting eleven as Senor Benitez will inevitably continue to disregard my expertise in team picking ........cabron.:mad:

You can bet on him picking his little bird Perez from the Canaries.:D

What's wrong with Berocca?

Signed because we needed "someone" rather than to get into the first team when anyone else is fit
