Willock pressing hard, Elneny must go.

We completed our pre-season fixtures yesterday with a 2:1 defeat to Barcelona. There were many positives in a first half of pressing and fast interchanges and transitions.

Barca will inform us about how we’ll line up against the Magpies

Just writing the above headline makes me flinch nervously and look over my shoulder #MagpieFacts.
