Name the Starting XI - Newcastle (a)

Name the Starting XI - Newcastle (a)

This Saturday lunchtime we`re at St James Park, for a 12:45 kick-off, to take on a troubled Newcastle United side.

After the splendid performances against Manchester City (Premier League) and Arsenal (Capital One Cup), two performances that saw Jose Mourinho field almost entirely different sides, with Gary Cahill being the only common denominator, it`ll certainly be interesting to see who makes Jose`s starting eleven this Saturday.

Did any of those who performed so well, against Arsenal, do enough to dislodge their counter-parts that beat Manchester City?

Will a trip to Newcastle be a case of horses for courses?

Or will Jose see the early kick-off as the chance to take the fight to the rest of the Premier League, take the three points and sit proudly on top of the Premier League table?

Three interesting questions posed and three questions you may like to take into consideration when you try and second guess Jose in our usual feature ahead of a fixture.

Right, who`ll get me started and get the ball rolling?

If its based on who performed well against mancity/arsenal, my preferred eleven would be cech azplicueta cahill terry betrand ramires lampard hazard willian oscar torres, but mourinho knows best. Looking forward to a resounding win. KTBFFH:)

we didn't do well over there last season and am sure Terry would be raring to go due to his error there last time. We need to consolidate on our winning run and let's hope liverpool can do us a great favour by drawing with le arse. (yea draw, i don't need them to win) though arsenal seems to know how to thump them smh. And congrats to traore i always know the club would handle his situation.

I don't see oscar not starting the game,especially when he didn't feature in the COC game except jose wants to rest him for the UCL game next midweek,I think the line up will be the same players that started against city and if there is going to be any difference it will be willian coming on for schurlle
