Stability The Key For Rafa

Stability The Key For Rafa

Newcastle kick off their televised game at Brighton soon with the news that we start with the same eleven players that started the game against Stoke last week.

The longer gap between games in the premier league is almost certainly the main reason aside from injury or fitness liabilities that usually dictate otherwise, not to mention the momentum that has been picked up.

With us looking to win our fourth game in a row, a stable side all knowing what job they have to do is paramount in aiming to achieve our first target of the season by getting to forty points as quickly as possible to keep the stress levels down.

Stability was also a key phrase that Rafa Benitez used when being interviewed on Sky TV in a one to one interview about his future and he said it was a very important thing for football and in life.

The unchanged line up sees Jonjo Shelvey again being left on the bench to stew after his daft sending off against Spurs saw Mikel Merino grab his chance brilliantly with some eye catching displays. Tim Krul who saw his loan move to Brighton confirmed as a permanent deal this week amkes the Brighton bench.

Newcastle Starting XI:
Elliot; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Mbemba; Hayden, Merino; Ritchie, Perez, Atsu; Joselu.

Darlow, Gamez, Manquillo, Diame, Shelvey, Murphy, Gayle.
