Rafa Benitez and his Newcastle United side travel to Blackburn Rovers today, with the hope and expectation of bringing back three points and maintaining their title hopes.
However, as Owen Coyle’s side proved last time that they met the Magpies, Blackburn will be no pushovers.
Newcastle will have to be on their game if they are to get anything from the game.
In the build up to this game, the debate about Jonjo Shelvey has died down a little bit, but no doubt waits to resurface as soon as the side has another negative result.
One argument that won’t go away though, is whether Jack Colback and Isaac Hayden compliment each other. Many fans think not, feeling that the side may need someone who can think forward more often, when in possession of the ball.
Someone who is good on the ball, is Vurnon Anita. Someone who has another fan favourite, in DeAndre Yedlin, competing for his position.
So, why not kill two birds with one stone? Anita in midfield? Obviously the manager knows far better and works with them every day in training, but could it be food for thought?
