Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a little upset against the form book today, as they bid to take the three points against a Man United side who need the win themselves!
Newcastle have been on a steady slide for a few months now, and Rafa Benitez has been doing everything in his managerial locker to stop the rot. Still, the Magpies have won only one of their last five Premier League matches and sit just outside the relegation zone by one point.
It will be a tough ask today to turn over United, even at home. However, Benitez needs to chop some of the players who are not performing as well as they should be, given the circumstances. Newcastle have struggled for goals this season and it’s one of the main factors in their poor form, but some recent additions in the winter market will hopefully have our local toon army happy again.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at what two players, the Spaniard should drop today…
