After playing Saturday we will get another glimpse into how Rafa Benitez will navigate the English Championship this year. How heavily will he rotate his squad from game to game? My prediction:

4-1-4-1

-Sels

-Yedlin, Mbemba, Lascelles, Clark

-Hayden

-Ritchie,Diame,Shelvie,Ayoze

-Mitro

I think Rafa could make 5 changes to the squad. Yedlin has gotten into games off the bench in the two most recent weeks and I can see him in the starting eleven. Away from home I think Ciaran Clark gets a run out at left back with Laazar maybe getting his debut off the bench. Hayden comes back into the team to replace Colback. Goufran, despite his good form gets a rest for this midweek game with Perez taking his place. Last I see Mitrovic’s fresh legs starting up top.

The score: 1-1
