Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
After holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw in their last Premier League game, Newcastle United will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Cambridge United in the Premier League last 64. The Magpies are fighting hard to secure the EPL survival, but they have big ambitions for the 2021/2022 FA Cup campaign as well.
The club chiefs aim to be very active in the January transfer window, but head coach Eddie Howe will have to count on current squad for Saturday’s clash. Since attacking duo Saint-Maximin and Wilson is out with injuries, Brazil international Joelinton is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. Midfielder Isaac Hayden is back from the Premier League ban. The U’s, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travelers, meaning that Eddie Howe’s troops will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways.
Highlighted Player (Paul Dummet):
Paul Dummett is a product of Newcastle United’s youth school. His main position is left back, but he is capable of playing as a centre back as well. The defender was born on 26 September, 1991 and he played for the likes of Gateshead and St. Mirren on loan in the past.
Dummett returned to Newcastle United in 2013 and he featured in 18 games for the Magpies in the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign. On the last day of the season, he made a hard tackle on Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez and, in turn received death threats from Uruguay fans on Twitter. The Newcastle United defender scored one goal in 23 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the St. James’ Park outfit avoid relegation to the Championship.
Paul Dummett plays for Wales and he made his debut for the Dragons on June, 2014 against Netherlands. It has to be noted that Dummett won the Scottish League Cup with St. Mirren in the 2012/2013 season.
