Thanks to everybody who helped us come up with our fans choice of the Newcastle team v Arsenal.

Using our interactive feature,  NUFC team selector, we asked you to choose your preferred formation and starting eleven.

You can still 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.

However, the fans choice overall so far for team selection and formation is below.

Coloccini’s suspension meant choices were even more limited as nobody seems to becrawling out of the treatment room.

The biggest surprise possibly is that the supporters have gone for Lubomir Satka to make his Premier League debut in the middle of the defence.

Fans seeing the risk on his inexperience as a far better bet than making numerous other changes to put somebody like Daryl Janmaat in the middle.

Much of the team picked itself as with only 13 senior outfield players available the choice was limited.

Almost every single person picked Krul, Williamson, Ryan Taylor, Colback, Janmaat, Sissoko, Perez and Cabella.

Which then left two other places, with Ameobi and Obertan just about fighting off Jonas Gutierrez, Riviere, Gouffran and Anita.
