Eddie Howe didn't have many options available to him so it's unsurprising that the Newcastle United boss names the same team for the third game in a row.

To be honest, even if we had a few players coming back from injury, there'd be no need to change the starting XI.

The current team defeated Chelsea 4-1 last weekend and should have come away from Paris with all three points in the Champions League but for PSG being awarded a dubious penalty.

Miley masterclass incoming

Lewis Miley gets his chance to shine again, and we've already said we're backing him to get his first senior goal today.

Unchanged again

Our prediction was spot on and as expected, Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie, Lewis Hall and Emil Krafth make the bench along with Martin Dubravka and Loris Karius as well as youngsters Amadou Diallo, Alex Murphy and Ben Parkinson.

Andre Onana has kept his place between the sticks for Manchester United which should give our lads plenty of confidence.

Newcastle have the strength to see this through

Hopefully, they enact our 'shoot on sight' idea to take advantage of the dodgiest 'keeper in the Premier League right now.

Newcastle's starting XI should have enough to get three points tonight, goals from Miley and Alexander Isak are on the cards.

Of course, if things aren't going our way, we once again lack the depth on the bench to really change things up, but we 100% back the lads to get this done.
