Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone said on the Goals on Sunday show on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday morning (November 22) that there are too many changes to the Newcastle United team.
“There always seem to be a bit of chopping and changing up in Newcastle,” said the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder. “Leicester have had a settled team. Everybody knows what they are doing, and it allows partnerships to develop.
“I think we have seen that, whereas Newcastle chopping and change a little bit, and I think it is hard for people to get that understanding a little bit and performances at the same time.”
Huddlestone was giving his thoughts on Newcastle following their 3-0 defeat to Leicester City at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The loss means that Steve McClaren’s side are 17th in the league table at the moment with just 10 points from 13 matches, just a point above the relegation zone.
McClaren would be wise to listen to Huddlestone, who got relegated with Hull from the Premier League to the Championship at the end of last season.
The Newcastle manager needs to find his best starting lineup, although one can understand if he changes it from time to time depending on the opposition.
Newcastle are one of the biggest clubs in England, but they are real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
