Newcastle predicted the line-up against Cambridge

3

Eddie Howe will welcome the break from the Premier League when Newcastle host Cambridge in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Magpies last tasted lifted this piece of silver all the way back in 1955, with the record becoming a reflection of the neglect inflicted on the club in recent years.

Although top-class survival is far from certain, Newcastle loyalists hope the arrival of new owners marks a change in attitudes towards domestic silver.

This is how the magpies could line up.

Karl Darlow (GK) – Lost his place to Martin Dubravka in the league after a series of errors.

Javier Manquillo (RB) – Usually he stands on the left side, but he can benefit from playing on his favorite side this weekend.

Ciaran Clark (CB) – Has lost his place in the team but he can replace Fabian Schar this weekend.

Jamaal Lascelles (CB) – Will be keen to retain his place on the team with Newcastle linked to a host of midfielders.

Matt Ritchie (LB) – Shined under Howe in Bournemouth but has been missing recently after testing positive for Covid-19.

Jeff Hendrick (CM) – Has fallen into disfavor in recent months and will be keen to show Howe what he can do.

Joe Willock (CM) – This weekend can be a great opportunity to rediscover the goal-scoring touch he has lost since coming permanently.

Miguel Almiron (RW) – Full of energy on the right wing, even though he really needs to improve his end product.

Dwight Gayle (ST) – Newcastle may look for a Wilson replacement in January, but Gayle will have to step up in the meantime.

Jacob Murphy (LW) – His pace and tricks will be the key to unlocking a deep Cambridge defense.
