Here's how Twitter reacted to the news...

@NUFCThreatLevel – “If he’s rushed these players back again it might be the first case a physio is booed on.”

@ashby_tim – “Compare the mobility in their midfield to ours. I'm going for 25% possession today, although hopefully I'm wrong.

The i newsletter cut through the noise

@JordNufcmorris – “Hopefully Joelinton bags another goal today!”

@JosefK2020 – “How does Krafth get a game in the @premierleague? He’s totally out of his depth. Awful decision by Bruce.”

@Matt_Balm – “Whilst I’m delighted ASM is fit, surely given what’s been happening with injuries you’d have him on the bench? Bring him on last 20-30 so he sharpens up?”

@jmagla – “So no attacking option on the bench at all? Looks like its Joelinton or nothing...”

@kendallrowanx YT: – “Dunno if I would’ve risked ASM straight away BUT to look for good results without him is tough.”
