Fans choice of Newcastle team v Arsenal

5 years ago

Thanks to everybody who helped us come up with our fans choice of the Newcastle team v Arsenal.

Using our interactive feature,  NUFC team selector, we asked you to choose your preferred formation and starting eleven.

The most popular was a 4-2-3-1 formation and the team selection by supporters can be seen below.

Some talking points…

Once again Mitrovic was almost a unanimous choice to start up front.

Whilst at the other end of the pitch the entire back five picked itself, at least in the eyes of the supporters. The only deviation was some fans choosing Steven Taylor but in nearly every case, that was only when they had chosen a formation with a back five.

Colback, Wijnaldum and Thauvin were easy choices for pretty much every fan choosing their team.

Then with Ayoze Perez, you had another who was the choice of over 80% of fans but is maybe the one who could lose out in Steve McClaren’s eyes, if there is a squeeze for places and he is an unlucky victim of the increased choices available.

The real contest was who would play alongside Jack Colback in this formation, with Moussa Sissoko narrowly outpointing Vurnon Anita.

Sissoko is said to be a good chance of making the game today but even if fit, will Steve McClaren play him ahead of Vurnon Anita?
