Man Utd helping the sky’ Newcastle, ‘oil hand or No.4’ GK in the final

You have to choose between ‘Oil Hand Goalkeeper’ and ‘No.4 Goalkeeper’.

Newcastle lost 0-2 스포츠토토 to Liverpool in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at St. James Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, England on the 19th at 2:30 am (Korean time). As a result, Newcastle (41 points, 10 wins, 11 draws, 2 losses, 35 goals and 15 losses) remained in 4th place.

Newcastle’s momentum has been dampened by recent draws with Crystal Palace (0-0 draw), West Ham United (1-1 draw) and Bournemouth (1-1 draw). It was even more disappointing as the opponents were not the top clubs but the lower clubs. This time, they called Liverpool home and tried to win again.

Coach Eddie Howe started the 4-3-3 formation. Alain Saint-Maximin, Alexander Isaac, and Miguel Almiron were in the forefront. The midfield was defended by Elliott Anderson, Joelinton and Sean Longstaff. Dan Byrne, Sven Botman, Fabian Cher, and Kieran Trippier sortied in the back four. Nick Pope in goal.

But this time also did not bring results. In the 10th minute of the first half, Darwin Núñez scored the first goal, and in the 17th minute, Cody Gakpo allowed an additional goal and sank. Even bad things happened. In the 22nd minute of the first half, Pope, who kicked the goal while blocking a one-on-one chance by Mohamed Salah, was sent off for a handball foul.

In the remaining minutes, Newcastle responded by rushing in Martin Dubravka. After entering the second half, Callum Wilson, Anthony Gordon, Jacob Murphy and Matt Rich stepped on the ground, but it was not enough to overturn the game by overcoming the numerical inferiority. In the end, Newcastle lost to Liverpool and failed to escape a draw.

The problem doesn’t end here. A gap occurred in the match against Manchester United in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) final scheduled for the early morning of the 27th. Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ reported that “next week Newcastle will have to choose either Loris Karius or Mark Gillespie for the final.”

Pope, who was restricted from participating in the EFL Cup due to his exit from Liverpool, and Dubravka, who played in the EFL Cup while on loan at Manchester United, are all unable to play against Manchester United. Therefore, Newcastle are in a situation where they have to choose between Karius, who was stigmatized as the worst ‘oil hand’ during his Liverpool days, or Gillespie, who has not participated in official matches since 2020.
