Newcastle have 12 injured first team players, and they have a game midweek.

What could possibly go wrong??

We desperately need to take 3 points here. They are decimated by injuries as you say, our record up there is pretty poor considering they have not had a good team for over a decade.

Utd are away at Liverpool. Wolves away at in form Southampton. Sheff Utd are away at Arsenal and Spurs at in form Watford.

3 points here and we should give ourselves a nice bit of breathing space.

With regards to the starting team, the only debate is at left back. The other ten I reckon should be shoe-ins. 

The bench, in terms of attack, looks pitiful.

Kepa

James Rudiger Christensen Azpi

Kovacic Jorginho

CHO Mount Willian

Must win, get some momentum up with some trickier matches to come.

The team selection for Arsenal will be tricky, as players may need a rest, but I don't think Frank should pick this team with that in mind, we need some momentum and making too many changes causes us problems.

I'd go all out with the strongest team for Newcastle and Arsenal (injuries permitting) and then rest as many as possible vs Hull the following weekend.

Is there any update on when Pulisic might be fit to start again? Could do with him quickly as our options are looking a bit thin in the CF & AM areas

Same team as the one that played Burnley for me. 

I think traditionally this is a difficult ground for us IIRC.. but with United at Liverpool, three points here can seal top 4 for us almost.
