Newcastle fans discuss Matt Ritchie’s potential return after the international break

Newcastle’s form has improved recently.

Matt Ritchie is back in training with the Newcastle United first-team.

Steve Bruce has a selection dilemma to make after the international break. With the team on red-hot form, can he justify dropping anyone to make room for Ritchie?

Ritchie was arguably Newcastle’s best player at the start of the season. However, the versatile 30-year-old picked up an injury when he was fouled by Hamza Choudhury in August.

Without Ritchie, Newcastle struggled for a while. But Bruce seems to have found a winning formula now. Three wins and a draw in the last five matches has propelled the Magpies up the league table.

Ritchie is able to play at left-back, in midfield or as a winger. But where does he fit in at the moment? Newcastle’s starting line-up has provided a foundation for success in recent weeks.

Newcastle fans took to Twitter to discuss this conundrum. Ritchie has been training and is likely to be passed fir for the upcoming game against Aston Villa. Here are some tweets from fans debating the Ritchie dilemma.
