Fans choice of Newcastle team v Manchester City

6 years ago

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

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

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


With the immediate injury situation looking no better, Jack Colback look almost certain to miss today, whilst Steve McClaren confirmed on Friday that Obertan was also injured now, whilst Aarons and Haidara were still injured.

With Cheick Tiote only just back training and looking to be fully fit after this international break that is coming up, what choices were there?

Rumours abound that Steve McClaren could go for Yoan Gouffran in the centre of midfield in the expected absence of Jack Colback.

However, fans have gone for giving Florian Thauvin another try, with Wijnaldum playing a more withdrawn role.

Siem de Jong is presumably another option but he still looks way off the pace in the matches where he has played some part.

When it came to the defence, Kevin Mbabu was an overwhelming choice to keep his place, which I think would have been the case even if likes of Dummett & Haidara had been fit?
