Javier Manquillo was the go to man on Tuesday night.

Some people and no doubt Steve Bruce himself as well, would say that there was no alternative but to keep Javier Manquillo in the side against Blackburn, but is that really true?

The argument is that with Paul Dummett injured, Javier Manquillo was the obvious and only replacement to fill in on the left.

I get the feeling that Newcastle / Steve Bruce just take Javier Manquillo for granted, seeing him as a steady player who does a job and will do so regardless.

Steve Bruce making 10 changes to look after the ones who had played only 72 hours earlier, with one exception.

However, Javier Manquillo was still included in the team against Blackburn.

My guess is that to placate Matt Ritchie, Steve Bruce allowed him to play in his favoured wing position as Ritchie wouldn’t have fancied left-back.
