Match between Newcastle United and Stoke City to be played on Sunday 8th February 2015 at 14:05. Venue: St. James' Park, Newcastle.
Newcastle United welcome Stoke City to St James’ Park on Sunday with the Magpies seeking their second straight win since John Carver took over as permanent head coach.
Newcastle impressed last weekend, defeating Hull City 3-0 and with summer signing Remy Cabella in particularly fine form.
Not only did the Frenchman score his first goal since arriving in England, but he also looked a consistent threat and showed a tantalising glimpse of what Newcastle’s fans will be hoping to see regularly from now on.
Newcastle have a number of injuries to contend with as Carver has to make do without Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Steven Taylor, Ryan Taylor and Siem de Jong while Cheick Tiote is on international duty.
Newcastle also recently sent a quintet of young players on loan to Rangers and they will be hoping to impress from afar.
With all that in mind, here are the 11 players we expect the club to pick from the start this weekend:
Predicted Newcastle United starting line-up: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Haidara, Anita, Colback, Cabella, Sissoko, Ameobi, Perez
