Which Newcastle United Defenders Should Be Centre-Back v West Brom?

7 years ago

Three points were everything against Norwich, the third Premier League win in a row putting Newcastle United in a healthy place.

However, one thing the match didn’t decide for sure, was which two Newcastle United defenders should be centre-back against West Brom.

All three candidates ended up playing in Mathieu Debuchy’s enforced absence but it would take a brave man to say for sure who Alan Pardew will play next Saturday when West Brom visit.

I can’t see the manager making a daft decision like keeping Williamson, Coloccini and Mapou all in the team, as surely Debuhcy must come back in as the specialist right-back who is also in cracking form.

So which two Newcastle United defenders will he decide to play in the middle?

Mapou and Williamson were the settled pair in good form but it was Mapou shuffled over to right-back and the fact Coloccini is also captain surely adds an extra complication.

Mapou and Williamson have done really well but will Pardew drop his captain?

Which two would you play against West Brom?
