Dominic Calvert-Lewin could return after missing the last game


Right wing: Richarlison

Perhaps, it wouldn’t be a fixed position as Alli, Richarlison and Demarai Gray will likely rotate and change their positions from time to time making it a fluid attacking unit. There’s a good chance that Richarlison will play a little further ahead than Gray and Alli to supplement Calvert-Lewin.

The Brazilian scored a wonderful goal against Brentford and looks in good spirits. He won’t play as an outright winger sticking close to the lines but will instead drop towards the central spaces to increase the goal threat.

Striker: Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has returned to the side after a knock that ruled him out for the FA Cup. Calvert-Lewin has hardly played this season and on an individual level, he will be hoping to have an injury free second half of the season and make a big impact on the field.

Lampard expressed his excitement to work with the 24 year old. Calvert-Lewin might still take time to return to his absolute best and a slightly jaded performance shouldn’t be misunderstood for a dip in form.

Left wing: Demarai Gray

With the inclusion of Calvert-Lewin, either Anthony Gordon or Demarai Gray will miss out. Gray could retain his place for the sheer speed and dribbling qualities that allow him to stretch the Newcastle defence and disrupt their backline. Gray will have an interesting battle with Trippier.
