Fans choice of Newcastle team v Aston Villa

5 years ago

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

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

The preferred formation chosen was 4-4-2 and the collective viewpoint of the supporters sees two changes from the starting eleven at White Hart Lane last Sunday.

Steve McClaren revealed on Friday that Cheick Tiote was the only injured played who was now back available for selection, so the options were limited if you wanted to change the winning team.

The votes were overwhelming when it came to Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez being reinstated in the team, at the expense of Papiss Cisse and Siem de Jong.

The former Ajax player getting a few more votes than Cisse but nowhere near enough to retain his place.
