Newcastle v Chelsea Starting 11 – As Chosen By The Fans
When United were doing well and had few injuries/suspensions the line up was generally predictable but choosing a Newcastle v Chelsea starting 11 is a different matter.
With the small squad down to the bare bones despite only a handful of players missing, we asked the fans to choose who would be in their starting eleven.
The results were more than interesting.
This is the first 11 according to the votes.
Steven Taylor (33%) is certainly not flavour of the month with Mapou (84%) preferred by a massive majority.
In fact seven of the team get an overwhelming 93% minimum approval and so with Mapou that only leaves three spaces.
Santon’s recent form sees him drop to 59% but fans choose him to continue and both Marveaux (62%) & Haidara (53%) getting the nod to come in, with precious few alternatives.
While it would be an interesting formation to accommodate those eleven players, the Ameobis aren’t seen as deserving of a place today, though what Alan Pardew thinks is likely to be another matter.
Fans’ first eleven;
96% Ben Arfa
93% De Jong
Those missing out;
45% Sammy Ameobi
