Fans’ choice of Newcastle team v Chelsea

7 years ago

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

A bit of a striking response with the top six rated players all getting 99% support (100% in Perez’ case!).

What is even more poignant is of course that these are the five players left out at Leicester allegedly through injury; Perez, Sissoko, Janmaat, Colback and Coloccini, plus Tim Krul who has just come back from injury and is also fit to play, hopefully!

Making up the eleven today are Dummett (89%) and also Remy Cabella who was one of the few to show anything in that FA Cup shambles.

Fans also go for Riviere to help Perez up front, with Haidara (52%) and Santon (65%) making up the team, which if it does end up corresponding with John Carver’s choice, would presumably line up in a 3-5-2/5/3/2….or in reality 10-0-0!
