Team selection has raised eyebrows tonight – and for a change it's not Newcastle United that’s got people talking
Tonight’s Newcastle United v Manchester City team sheet has certainly raised some eyebrows – and for a change it’s not Steve Bruce’s selections that’s got people talking.
In comes Scott Carson for his City debut and first Premier League game for 10 years. Meanwhile on the United front, Joelinton replaces Callum Wilson – and here’s what fans think about the news.
@Carla25621284 – “Can someone explain why Joelinton is in starting 11.”
@Kevin_Nichol – “That City x11 isn’t unbeatable and I think we will score. What concerns me is a front x3 of Sterling, Jesus & Torres running at Krafth/Fernandez/Dummett.”
Newcastle United transfer news: Newcastle ‘planning to submit’ new offer for £50m playmaker, Aston Villa star ‘target’ for La Liga side
Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe 'favourite' to replace Gareth Southgate as England manager
Kieran Trippier ‘excited’ to work with Newcastle United transfer 'target'
@DpFinn9 – “Joelinton hat trick incoming.”
@nufcsense – “Scott Carson in goal for City lads. SHOOT ON SIGHT!”
@ToonMouthTyne – “Mad that Scott Carson is only 35. Was playing for Leeds in the Prem 20 years ago.”
@asabart14 – “Another big game from Willock, but I'm not expecting to win. Hopefully we can put on a performance.”
