Looking ahead to Sunday, much of the talk is about which Newcastle players should play in the forward positions.

Which basically means, the lone out and out forward, as well as the second striker/number 10.

Dwight Gayle started the first two Premier League matches as the centre-forward, then Joselu has had the shirt for the last four.

Whilst after sharing the number 10 position last season with Mohamed Diame in the Championship, Ayoze Perez has started all six Premier League matches.

Fair to say that both manager and fans expected these positions to have major investment in the summer but failing that, Rafa Benitez has to choose from the options currently available.

We have picked out 10 possibilities.

Which is basically Gayle, Mitrovic, or Joselu, for the main striker role.

Then we have given you seven likely, and not so likely, options for the number 10 role, several of them which would see Newcastle players shifted into new positions.

So please pick your two to play on Sunday from the choices below.

    Bring Shelvey into a 3 man midfield and play him further up the pitch. I think I’d probably start Gayle and bring on Mitro if its not going well at half time.

  • Paul Patterson

    Pointless discussing it. It won’t happen.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    21% voted for Joselu, i didn`t think there was that many idiots around

  • Soldier

    drop Perez & Joke elu & play Gayle & Murphy

  • Dennis Cunningham

    Joselu & Perez are just not premiership standard, I dont understand how either of them gets a place, play Gayle up front & Shelvey in midfield & go 4-3-3
