Benitez v Zenga
Once again the two managers have decisions to make about their teams. After such a thumping at the hands of Barnsley Zenga will be asking SOME serious questions about his new team and may decide that radical changes are needed to counter the threat of Newcastle.
Rafa’s charges are in fantastic form – they’re leading the division on goal difference and look more solid at the back then they have done for years. With 11 different goal scorers so far this season it will be difficult for the manager to decide who gets the nod. Expect a few changes from the win over QPR to give some players – especially those who played over the international break – a bit of a rest, especially with the next game (also against Wolves, but in the cup) coming a few days later.
