Newcastle predicted lineup vs Blackburn - FA Cup

Let's start this Newcastle predicted lineup vs Blackburn in the FA with the formation which Eddie Howe will use to start the game which will be 4-3-3. Durbravka has a 50% chance of making the game however, it looks most likely that Loris Karius will start in goal for the Magpies in this Blackburn vs Newcastle game.

In the defence, Kieran Trippier will look to forget his Emirates woes and start fresh as the right-back in this game. The same is true for Fabian Schar who looked out of character against Arsenal. He will start as the centre-back with Sven Botman who had a night to forget at Emirates. Dan Burn will come back as the left-back in this game.

One big positive for Newcastle in this game is the return of Joe Willcok who will start in the midfield. Apart from him, Newcastle's best player so far this season who didn't perform well over the weekend, Bruno Guimaraes will also start this game. Sean Longstaff will also be starting and he needs to improve his game if he wants to keep his place in the team.

When it comes to the attack for the Magpies in this Blackburn vs Newcastle FA Cup game, Harvey Barnes is expected to start from the left. Alexander Isak featured in that devastating loss to Arsenal. So, he is also expected to start as the striker. Anthony Gordon will play from the right instead of Almiron in this game.

Newcastle predicted lineup vs Blackburn: (4-3-3) Karius, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Willock, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Barnes, Isak, Gordon.
