During Newcastle United’s struggles this season, central midfield has been one of the major talking points.

So who would you choose to play in that central midfield area?

The three partnerships that appear to be in Steve McClaren’s choice of options, are two of Colback, Tiote and Anita.

All three combinations have been used due to McClaren’s choice and/or injuries.

We even saw Yoan Gouffran used in an emergency there against Manchester City earlier this season, with strong rumours that he will play there again at Palace on Saturday after featuring there for the reserves on Monday afternoon.

Do any of these pairings do it for you, or do we need a new signing to play alongside one of them?

Alternatively, is it two new signings that are needed to come in over and above that trio?

It is arguably the most important area of the pitch as hard to control the game if you don’t control the middle of the pitch.
