Let’s discuss the Newcastle predicted lineup for our away game in Milan. With a short break between the Brentford and AC Milan games, going from home to away is going to be a difficult challenge and something I am sure will factor into Eddie’s starting lineup. With only one change being made during the game against the Bees you have to think that there will be a somewhat new look for tomorrow’s game at AC Milan.

Newcastle predicted lineup vs AC Milan

Will we see the defence change that has played solid for the best part of the season? Will the midfield which has just started to click be shuffled? Who will line up at the top to ensure we score goals? It will all be discussed here so get those crystal balls out, it’s time to predict.

Eddie Howe’s Defence

A short turnaround from Saturday’s game to this game against AC Milan. No changes made to the defence during the game so what effect will this have on Tuesday’s game? I see a couple of changes happening.

Kicking off the Newcastle predicted lineup in goal, I am sure that Nick Pope will keep his place. He has to try his hardest not to come out of his box for stupid reasons as I don’t see this AC Milan team letting us off with these kinds of mistakes.

At right-back, Kieran Trippier will be sure to keep his place. As the veteran and most experienced player in this team, you would be mental not to keep him included.

Centreback is tricky. While I wouldn’t mind seeing Botman and Schar start in their usual positions I can’t see them doing this and being able to keep up with how well they can play. Sven Botman has to stay in the side but I see wiggle room for Schar. I think we see a rare Jamaal Lascelles appearance in this game, a decision that could backfire but rotation is needed.

Leftback I think we finally see changes. The Rossoneri have fantastic wingers, something Dan Burn would struggle massively against. Far too much pace coming at him for him to play well. Lewis Hall should get his first start. He has the pace, the passing range and the ability to dribble. A no-brainer for me.
