Eddie Howe starting eleven first game – Internationals rule one Newcastle United star out

Posted on

Eddie Howe was in at the Newcastle United training ground before 7am this (Tuesday) morning.

Sky Sports capturing the moment when the new Head Coach and his backroom staff arrived for day one of their work, in helping to turn Newcastle United around.

The players set to have their first training session under Eddie Howe this afternoon, so the new NUFC boss wanting to get cracking ASAP on his preparations ahead of it.

Eddie Howe and assistant Jason Tindall watched the Brighton match sitting alongside Amanda Staveley, the players then given Sunday and Monday off, before training begins under Howe today, the start of preparations for Brentford at home in 11 days time (Saturday 20 November).

Eddie Howe was formally announced as the new NUFC Head Coach at 3pm on Monday and now prepares to take charge of his 26 man Newcastle United first team squad.

These were the 20 players chosen by Graeme Jones for his final matchday squad in charge on Saturday:

Darlow, Murphy, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson: (SUBS) Dubravka, Schar, Joelinton, Lewis, Manquillo, Fraser, Longstaff, Willock, Gayle

The six that weren’t included were Mark Gillespie, Freddie Woodman, Federico Fernandez, Elliot Anderson, Jeff Hendrick and Paul Dummett. Of the six, only Dummett ruled out through injury.

Eddie Howe takes over at Newcastle United at the start of an international fortnight and that means a bit of a mixed bag of positives and negatives.

The new NUFC boss does have more time before his first match than would otherwise have been the case but on the other hand, a number of first team squad members are on international duty.

All of them are on World Cup qualifier duty, with the exception of Elliot Anderson who is with Scotland for Under 21s European Championships qualifiers.

In total, seven Newcastle players are on international duty (details) below, it would have been eight but Ryan Fraser pulled out of the Scotland side at the last minute. No details of any injury given and he was an unused sub on Saturday, so interesting to see what the story proves to be there.

Eddie Howe is fortunate in the sense that compared to most international fortnights, this one sees most of the Newcastle players involved, finishing their international commitments earlier than normal.

All the players / countries have two fixtures each and these are when each player sees their second game completed:

Sunday 14 November – Martin Dubravka, Jeff Hendrick and Emil Krafth

Monday 15 November – Jamal Lewis, Fabian Schar

Tuesday 16 November – Elliot Anderson

Wednesday 17 November – Miguel Almiron

Miguel Almiron is someone who surely these internationals have ruled out his chances of a Newcastle United place in the first Eddie Howe starting eleven.

His second game will end around 1am (UK time) on Wednesday morning in Barranquilla, Colombia. Which means he will be back on Tyneside Thursday (18 November) at the earliest, with at most one training session under Eddie Howe on the Friday.

With 19 year old Elliot Anderson clearly not going to make his first Premier League start in Howe’s opening game, we are then looking at Dubravka, Hendrock and Krafth available to train from Tuesday at the latest, then for Schar and Lewis it will be Wednesday at the latest. So a bit of a bonus in that they will get three or four training sessions in ahead of Brentford, compared to less than that usually in international breaks.

It will be very interesting to see what line Eddie Howe takes when it comes to picking his first starting eleven, with what appears likely to be to me, only Dummett and Almiron not available as starters, unless Fraser has picked up an injury that will keep him out as well, when it comes to the side that Howe will choose.
