Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Norwich City?

I think the team for Sunday could be relatively straightforward after Steve McClaren’s press conference on Thursday afternoon.

The Head Coach confirmed that Janmaat, Colback, Haidara and Dummett were all training and in contention to start against Norwich.

McClaren described the formation he put out against Manchester City as 4-4-1-1 and I can’t see him changing that.

The only difference I can see happening in the front six is assuming he’s fit enough, Jack Colback will surely come in for Gouffran who was terrible at the Etihad.

The Newcastle boss has confirmed that Rob Elliot will be in goal and the back four could take on a more recognisable shape than was perhaps feared.

Kevin Mbabu has presumably no chance of playing, which leaves it a toss up between Dummett and Haidara, with the one who is fittest probably getting the vote.

On the other side it looks likes Daryl Janmaat has shaken off his knee injury and will be ok.
