Earlier today we posed the question – a tough away match against West Ham this Monday night: should Papiss Cisse or Ayoze Perez play, or both, or neither…?

The quick poll was to gauge what the collective opinion of the supporters was.

Newcastle appear to have tightened up at the back but with no goals in three matches and only two attempts on target in that trio of matches, what is the right formula to use in the absence of Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Did you see it as a case of Cisse or Perez, or is there room for both in the team?

Here are the results:

58% Both Papiss Cisse and Ayoze Perez

30% Only Ayoze Perez

9% Only Papiss Cisse

3% Neither Cisse or Perez

Not surprisingly, hardly anybody chose to leave out both of Newcastle’s only available strikers, with Mitrovic suspended and Riviere injured.

A clear majority want a more attacking formation with both Perez and Cisse playing.

Taking the results another way and of the supporters voting, 88% wanted Aoze Perez playing, either on his own (30%) or along with Cisse (58%).

On the other hand a total of 67% want Papiss Cisse in the team one way or another, 9% wanting him and not Cisse, whilst the 58% want both.
