Predicted Newcastle United Line-up To Face Tottenham In The Premier League
With Newcastle United visiting Wembley to face Tottenham, Rafa Benitez will be looking for one win and make Tottenham’s path to cement their top-4 place even harder. Newcastle can blow open the top-4 race with a win against Spurs and no doubt they will be looking to play an attacking squad.
Here’s the predicted Newcastle XI for the game:
Probable Newcastle United XI
Manager: Rafael Benitez
Martin Dubravka (GK)
The Slovakian goalkeeper has been in fine form, saving Newcastle on many occasions and he will no doubt be looking to stop Harry Kane and co.
DeAndre Yedlin (RB)
Yedlin must still be bouncing after a fantastic assist versus Arsenal a few weeks back and he’ll look to do the same against Tottenham.
Jamaal Lascelles (LCB)
The Newcastle captain has been in great form at the back and he’ll be looking to rally the troops as they take on Spurs.
Florian Lejeune (RCB)
The Frenchman can continue Newcastle’s good form with a good performance against Tottenham’s famed attacking battery.
Phil Dummett (LB)
The hometown boy will once again feature at left-back and knows he has his work cut out as he faces Eriksen and Alli.
Matt Ritchie (RM)
Ritchie will look to create space down the left as he links up with the right-back and delivers crosses for Gayle to head in.
Jonjo Shelvey (RCM)
Shelvey can be a real midfield enforcer on a good day and he’ll no doubt be relishing the battle against Tottenham’s Dembele.
Mohamed Diame (LCM)
Diame will look to provide extra cover for the defence when the fullbacks march forward and will need to put in a hard shift.
The ex-Chelsea man has been good but he knows that he will need to step up in the big games to put himself in contention for a place at his old club.
Ayoze Perez (CAM)
The tricky playmaker will look to get in behind the opposition and feed off any crosses he receives while also linking up with Gayle.
Dwight Gayle (ST)
The striker has had a decent season and will look to add another scalp as he troubles Vertonghen and co. at Wembley.
