Fans choice of Newcastle team v West Ham

6 years ago

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

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…

The back five picked itself with only the odd vote for Steven Taylor and Anita, Tiote and the injured Dummett (all to pay left-back).

Cisse marginally outpointed Ayoze Perez but both comfortably made the fans choice.

Some supporters had the two playing together up front, though the vast majority saw the Spaniard in a more withdrawn role.

In a knock on effect, the inclusion of Perez led to leaving out Vurnon Anita, as Sissoko, Wijnaldum and Colback all overwhelmingly outscored the diminutive midfielder.

As for Florian Thauvin, he had almost 100% support from those voting.
