Danny Rose should start for Newcastle vs. Norwich tomorrow

Newcastle United added Danny Rose on loan yesterday and they should waste no time plugging him into the lineup.

Yesterday, Danny Rose was announced as a member of Newcastle United on loan from Tottenham. While the left-back has not featured recently for Spurs, Steve Bruce should not wait long to give him his first start in the black and white.

Danny Rose should be the starting left wing-back for Newcastle United. He won’t be at his full ability, but he has been in training with a Premier League club and featured earlier in January against Liverpool. He’s played against Newcastle United before, but how special would it be for his debut playing for the club to be at home in front of the Toon Army? His deal is only a loan until the end of the season, but he said the club’s passionate support was a big reason why he urged his agent to get him to the Magpies.

It’s obviously a different point in the season, but Newcastle United were blown out by Norwich earlier this season. Steve Bruce should start Rose to help limit the danger of the Canaries’ attack. Matt Ritchie is a solid player and works hard, but he’s far from a natural at left wing-back. The new loanee can bring quality into the attack and nearly 200 matches of Premier League defensive experience to the backline. With Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett out for the season, Rose should start every match that he’s able to for Newcastle United.

With Rose’s loan, the more matches that he plays, the more justification there will be to pay for him to join the club on a full transfer. There’s no reason to sit him out tomorrow vs. Norwich City if he’s physically ready to roll.
