Newcastle vs Hull City. Many would say that Newcastle not the favorite in this game but we think differently. Both teams have a good players but the game will be played at St James' Park and Newcastle finally must win at home. They are firstly lost against Man City in first round and after that they played draw with Crystal Palace 3:3. They have great team and they do not deserve to be last on the table. Hull City also have a great team but today they will not be able to play against a players who so want to win.
Papiss Cisse returned to Newcastle training this week following a long-term knee injury, but the Senegalese striker is expected to sit out this weekend’s match. They have a big injury concerns and Siem de Jong, Ryan Taylor, Davide Santon and Rolando Aarons will all definitely miss this match. Alan Pardew must find a way how to win and today he has a chance. Tiote has recovered from injury and is expected to be found in the starting lineup. Also Ayoze Perez and Steven Taylor are also ready for this match. Today all players will play for their boss and possible score at first half. They must win today.
Hull City is a team who scored in all match in this season. They have players who know how to score and they usually do that.
