Bruce's Dykes V Dyche's Burnley

Recommended Posts

This will be a "Pardew" for Bruce's boys "a free niw frashing" Burnley are in good form & should have no problem taking all 3 points. Im expecting plenty of booing at the end of the game.

Official Newcastle United announcement:

Jonjo Shelvey will return to the Newcastle United starting line-up for Saturday afternoon’s clash with Burnley at St. James’ Park (3pm kick-off).

Shelvey – who has missed the Magpies’ last five games through injury – will start in midfield alongside Isaac Hayden, who is recalled to the side as head coach Steve Bruce shuffles his pack for the visit of the in-form Clarets.

Martin Dúbravka continues in goal while United will revert to a four-man defence, with Javier Manquillo – who also returns to the team after a lengthy spell out with a hamstring injury – and Danny Rose as full backs either side of captain Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernández.

Matt Ritchie is also brought into the starting 11 to play wide on the right-hand side of midfield, with Shelvey and Hayden in the middle and Joelinton on the left.

And Dwight Gayle and Miguel Almirón will spearhead Newcastle’s attack as they look for a first league victory since January’s 1-0 win over Chelsea.

So he has dropped ASM to play Joelinton on the left? It made slightly more sense when I thought he was dropping ASM to play Ritchie, as AH pointed out he was going with the grafters approach, but dropping probably our best player to favor one of our worst performers is really odd.
