Fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 vs Arsenal

7 years ago

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

Injuries leave us guessing as to exactly who will be involved but while Sissoko and Steven Taylor are suspended.

The following all look to be missing as Alan Pardew said the injury situation was the same as for Chelsea;

Tim Krul, Davide Santon, Ryan Taylor, Siem De Jong, Rolando Aarons, Gabriel Obertan, Rob Elliot, Curtis Good and Mehdi Abeid.

A massive divide shows when it comes to the fans choosing the team, for them the eleven players appear to pick themselves, with Remy Cabella getting the lowest votes (75%) of the top eleven, with a huge drop to 12th man Williamson on 26%.

Whether Alan Pardew agrees is clearly up for debate, while the manager has also hinted that Papiss Cisse might not be in a good enough physical condition to start.

If the manager went with the fan choice then it would certainly be a side built more for attack than defence, with Perez and Cisse in attacking position, plus Ameobi and Cabella getting forward from midfield.

The first eleven are in bold with the rest below.

100% Janmaat

99% Dummett

99% Coloccini

98% Tiote
