Fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 v Chelsea

6 years ago

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the votes for the fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 v Chelsea.

Injuries, as always recently, leave us guessing as to exactly who will be involved,

On the definite injured list we appear to have Santon, Ryan Taylor, De Jong, Krul and Obertan all definitely missing.

Alan Pardew says that while Coloccini is training again he isn’t sure whether he will be fit enough to play. If there is that much doubt we’ve left him out as surely the manager wouldn’t risk him from the start…?

Some really strong opinions showing through here.

Daryl Janmaat tops the poll and little wonder after he and Colback were name din the top ten hardest working Premier League players.

Fans choosing Sissoko (98%), Colback (94%) and Abeid (74%) to make up the midfield, but no Tiote (40%). This was also before the Tiote driving/Champagne video revelations this morning and public apology from the player.

In the centre of defence, Dummett (96%) and Steven Taylor (90%) are way ahead of Williamson (9%).

Cabella (82%) gets a clear vote to play in the attacking third, while opinions on Perez (61%) and Cisse (66%) are a bit more divided.

When it comes to players the fans don’t want in the team, players such as Gouffran (3%), Anita (1%) and Riviere (3%) figure ‘highly’.

Will Alan Pardew agree though?
