Newcastle United are hosting Fulham at St. James' Park today. Newcastle have scored exactly 0 Premier League goals in the new season and are 4 matches without a goal going back to last season and will be looking to change that against a side that played very compact in the corresponding fixture last year until the infamous Cissé in the crowd goal happened. Here's hoping for more of that... except for earlier and more often.
Newcastle United: (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Matthieu Debuchy, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Davide Santon; Hatem Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita, Moussa Sissoko, Sylvain Marveaux; Shola Ameobi, Papiss Cissé.
subs: Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Dan Gosling, Yohan Cabaye, Sammy Ameobi, Yoan Gouffran, Loic Remy.
Fulham: (4-4-2) Stockdale; Riether, Hangeland, Hughes, Riise; Kacaniklic, Sidwell, Parker, Ruiz; Berbatov, Bent.
subs: Etheridge, Karagounis, Duff, Briggs, Taarabt, Rodallega and Boateng
So there you have it - Cabaye and Remy on the bench and Darren Bent getting the start against the club that nearly (allegedly) loaned him.
