Jamaal Lascelles– hoping team have set the standard after Manchester United Skipper Jamaal Lascelles spoke to about the team selection last weekend and what he expects going forward: “The manager made a few changes; we know how hard a job it is for a manager to drop players and put players on the bench, but he’s put Matty Longstaff in there, added Ciaran to the team and obviously Allan (Saint-Maximin) was back in the team, so a few new faces who haven’t really featured this season and they did a great job.

One thing Steve Bruce did on Sunday that really impressed us was his bold team selection.

I think momentum is a big thing in football but I think a little break won’t do us any harm and we can refresh but still knowing that we’ve just beaten Man U, and we’re still on a high from that, so hopefully we can go into the Chelsea game full of confidence.” The team has shown little consistency this season so we’ll have to wait to see if last weekend will be the standard going forward.

He also handed Allan Saint-Maximin and DeAndre Yedlin their first starts since returning from injury.

We’ve set our standard now and that’s how we always need to play.

After the Leicester performance, a statement needed to be made and Bruce did just that.

These players struck a perfect balance between experience and youthful exuberance, while adding the power and pace the team needed to threaten Manchester United.
