Benitez to make no changes – Strongest 4-4-1-1 Newcastle United line-up to face Watford

Predicted Newcastle United Line-up To Face Watford In The Premier League

Newcastle United travel to Watford this weekend as the Magpies look to put behind their 1-0 defeat at the hands of basement club West Brom.

Newcastle are 10th on the table and Rafael Benitez will hope his boys produce a fantastic display and get a positive result against the Hornets on Saturday.

With three games left and Premier League survival secured, the Toons will have a task to finish the season in high spirits and look forward to next campaign with optimism.

Probable Newcastle XI

Manager: Rafael Benitez

Formation: 4-4-1-1

Martin Dubravka (GK)

Dubravka has been the No.1 between the sticks since making his move from Slavia Prague earlier this year. His solid performances in goal mean he will retain his place against Watford.

DeAndre Yedlin (RB)

A right-back who loves to get forward and contribute to Newcastle’s attacks, Yedlin is a player thriving under Benitez. Defensively, he is decent but needs more improvement.

Jamaal Lascelles

Jamaal Lascelles (CB)

One of the most impressive defenders in the Premier League this season, Lascelles has impressed a lot with his no-nonsense and solid defending. His leadership will be important as Newcastle look to get back to winning ways on Saturday.

Florian Lejeune (CB)

Partnering Lascelles at the heart of Newcastle defence will be Florian Lejeune. The duo has forged a strong partnership and will look to keep the Watford forwards at bay.

Paul Dummett (LB)

One of the most consistent and reliable players in the league, Dummett has excelled at left-back and will retain his place against the Hornets.

Matt Ritchie (RW)

One of the most creative players in the Newcastle ranks, Ritchie has the ability to produce something out of nothing. His pace and dynamism will be important at Watford.

Matt Ritchie

Jonjo Shelvey (CM)

Shelvey is the midfield enforcer for the Magpies and he will have to be at his best to unlock the Watford defence.

Mohamed Diame (CM)

Diame provides a lot of stability and energy in Newcastle’s midfield. The Senegalese is a hard-tackling midfielder and his defensive qualities will come in handy.

Kenedy (LW)

What a signing Kenedy is proving to be at Newcastle! The on-loan Chelsea player has adapted well at Tyneside, assisting and scoring goals for fun. He is a sure starter against Watford.

Ayoze Perez

Ayoze Perez (CAM)

Perez is a hardworking individual and gives his 100% every time he is on the pitch. The Spaniard’s ability to create chances will be crucial as he should start behind the main striker.

Dwight Gayle (ST)

Dwight Gayle should lead the attack for Newcastle. He will need to be clinical to ensure that the Magpies return home with all three points.
