Newcastle United expected starting XI v AC Milan: Eddie Howe makes £137m & Sandro Tonali call - gallery
Newcastle United predicted starting XI v AC Milan as the Magpies return to the Champions League following a 20-year absence.
Heading to Italy on the back of beating Brentford 1-0 on Saturday evening, Magpies’ head coach Eddie Howe has a few selection dilemmas. For example, Callum Wilson started and scored at the weekend but waiting in the wings is Alexander Isak.
Previewing the game, Howe said: “We want to do as well as we can. There is no secret, no surprise in my answer. We want to be very competitive first and foremost. We want to give a really good account of ourselves and impose our style of play on the competition, and with that then we hope we get the results that follow.
“The competitive nature of our game has to be there, which it was against Brentford. We went back to basics again and we need to do that again tomorrow night.
