@S9Wolf: Wow I did NOT expect that! Come on boys! #HWTL

@Cullercoats111: Not bad. I’m still bemused however with Fernandez. Not even a sub. What’s going on?

@LiamRice6: Happy with the look of that #NUFC

@alexpoole19: Probably the most attacking team we could possibly play. Howay the lads!! #nufc

@nufcsanjay: Ryan Fraser right wing back...very interesting. I know Howe used him there a few times at Bournemouth. I'm not against it tbh, we need to find a way to get him into the team, and this might be it. We all know how great his delivery can be from the right. #NUFC

@_SJB_21: Pleased to see Dubravka back in the fold. Intrigued to see Ryan Fraser playing RWB? #NUFC

@chris_armin: Dubravka back and by the looks of it Eddie’s going for it! Proper up for this now!#HWTL #NUFC #ARSNEW

@turnbullmichae7: Attacking team again but no DM in there to protect a leaky back 4. Can see them using this to their advantage. We just need to finish our chances and score more than them

@nufc188: Very attacking side hope fraser is willing to track back with tierney and saka on that side. Come on you mags

@cjlow_: Must be a reason why Fernandez is still not even making the squad

@LawesDisorder: Glad to see Dubravka back. This is laid out as if we're playing 3-4-3, but those players could easily be set up in a 4-2-3-1. Perhaps that flexibility is what we're going for. Excited to see us play today. #nufc

@GeordiPaul81: Ooooo Martin Dubravkaaaaa #nufc #ARNEW #comeonyoumaggies

@kieraandixon: Dubravka back, Schar starts! No more Clark! And Fraser at wing back. Eddie Howe’s black and white Mags #NUFC

@bentaylor605: This could be interesting… certainly not a 0-0 anyway! #nufc
