@SimplyAlmiron – “Wilson, Saint-Maximin, Almiron and Willock all starting! Things you love to see.”

@DentonKane – “#LEINEW their team looks bit scary doesn't it...Oh well up the Toon!”

@nufckeithr – “Good to see Willock start, but wrong player loses out. If Shelvey hasn't been dropped after last week's performance, he never will be under Bruce.

@DrSquatpump – “Steve Bruce will literally play Shelvey in any position to have him in the team #NUFC

@seancavens – “Scratching my nappa again at Shelvey’s inclusion & don’t get me started on Krath being a CB.”
