Who do you think will be in the Newcastle team v Man City at the Etihad tomorrow?

Steven Taylor, Siem de Jong, Paul Dummett, Rob Elliot and Cheick Tiote are all definitely out of the match at the Etihad, whilst John Carver has said that Remy Cabella is almost certainly out as well for this game.

Rolando Aarons has just started training again, so you would think it unlikely he would be fit enough to start.

I predict that Mehdi Abeid could at last get back into the starting eleven and return to the scene of his best performance to date, in the League Cup win.

I could also see Ryan Taylor who played similarly well, also getting a surprise selection, though in his case I think he may probably have to settle for the ebnch.

Gabriel Obertan looks a knocking bet to get his chance as well.

While as for the defence…well it picks itself.

So I predict the line-up below, though this is what I think John Carver will select and not my own first eleven.

To create the image above I used our new feature, the NUFC team selector.

You can do the same by following the simple instructions HERE and then there are a number of great options where you can then also share your team via Twitter (include @nufcthemag in your tweet and we will share some of them with our 13k+ followers) , or you can share the selector on Facebook with friends, family and the rest of the black and white world.

When using the NUFC team selector you simply click on what team formation (4-3-3, 4-4-2 etc) you want, then click each position on the pitch and choose from the Newcastle United squad.

It is really that simple even I can do it! Or you have the option of simply downloading the team image to the device you are using.

Go to the NUFC team selector now and choose and share your team selection v  Manchester City.
