Why Paul Dummett Should Not Play At Centre Back vs Liverpool

The Premier League resumes on Saturday afternoon with the exciting fixture between league leaders Liverpool and Newcastle United.

Liverpool will host the Magpies at Anfield with the target of maintaining their perfect start to the new league campaign.

The Reds have won their first four games and Newcastle United face a big battle to achieve the status of being the first team to take points off the Premier League table toppers.

Ahead of the game, Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce might need to make a change to his defensive line to have a bigger chance of getting a result against the Reds.

Steven Bruce endured a frustrating start to his career as the Newcastle United manager after the club’s fans rejected his appointment due to his previous affiliation with Northeast rivals Sunderland whom he managed in the Premier League.

He is a boyhood Newcastle United fan who’s living the dream of managing the club but his past relationship with Sunderland meant that the Geordies distanced themselves from one of their own.

For the Liverpool game, Steve Bruce may need to shift Paul Dummett from centre back to left back in place of Jetro Williams to provide more defensive solidity for his team.

Federico Fernandez could take the place of Dummett in the three-man defence alongside Fabian Schar and club skipper Jamaal Lascelles.

Summer signing Emil Krafth should retain his place at right-back ahead of the fit again DeAndre Yedlin who’s the first choice from previous seasons.
