Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Northampton Town?

The arrival of the first cup match under Steve McClaren’s reign, has predictably produced much discussion as to how many changes will be made from Saturday’s team at Old Trafford.

With claims of certain players being ‘knackered’ and suggestions by the media that up to nine changes will be made, who will get a game?

Well McClaren has given us some clues, with general hints that he will change the line-up and specifically he has named Siem de Jong as a definite starter.

The Head Coach has also named Tiote, Thauvin and Williamson as amongst the group who may get to start tonight’s match.

From Thauvin’s message on Twitter it sounds as though he expects to start, whilst Mitrovic says that he also hopes to.

In addition, the local press have claimed that Krul and Coloccini are expected to be ‘rested’, whilst Vurnon Anita is said to have a back problem after Saturday, which means he definitely won’t play.

Putting all of these clues together, I can see Steve McClaren choosing the following Newcastle team v Northampton Town:
