'No Willock makes no sense' & 'Krafth not starting is positive' – Newcastle United fans are torn on Steve Bruce's Burnley selection
Steve Bruce has made just the two changes to his Newcastle United side to face Burnley today – but fans think he maybe should have made more.
And the absence of Joe Willock as well Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson has fans asking questions...
@dedwards1892 – “And another team picked to not lose, so on that basis. I'm not expecting to win against a poor Burnley side.
@MartinJohnson10 – “Best to set your expectations low and then anything positive that happens is a bonus. Steve Bruce’s nufc.”
@GThirlaway – “Thought ASM would start after the impact he made against spurs, Willock also. Glad Ritchie starts and no Hendrick.”
@clarkemi – “Don’t think Lascelles is that big of a loss. Also Shelvey should not be anywhere near that team never mind captain.
@NeilHindson – “A positive is Kraft doesn’t start. Arguably our best 3 defenders start. Would have Willock for Shelvey.”
@IanThomas23NUFC – “For once I’m happy he’s not tinkered with a team that did ok last match. Yes Wilson & Maxi on bench but that’s sensible. Three decent central defenders in this formation. If we attack then the win is there for us...still Bruce out though.
@GThirlaway – “Disappointed. Thought we had a chance at 3pts today not so sure now. Big chance with the keeper they're playing let's hope that goes in our favour, aye really Disappointed.”
@JohnMacjakedom – “Willock being on the bench just doesn’t make sense. Shelvey can’t move around the pitch to compete at this level. Willock gives the team legs and a threat in front of goal.”
