Fans choice of Newcastle team v Brighton for Sunday

5 years ago

Using our interactive feature, NUFC team selector, supporters have chosen their Newcastle team v Brighton.

The collective formation chosen was 4-2-3-1 with fans going for a team that looks very similar to the one that defeated Stoke City 2-1 last Saturday.

Rafa Benitez shook things up then with three changes from the team he put out against Swansea and there’s nothing to say he won’t do the same again.

However, the fans have overwhelmingly indicated they would like to see most of Saturday’s line up at Brighton tomorrow.

The back five were all big favourites to stay the same, with a similar story in midfield with Merino and Hayden, the Spaniard having pretty much universal support after his efforts in these last three wins.

With Ritchie it is the same story as Merino and Christian Atsu & Joselu both picked up somewhere around 75% support.

Gayle was the competition for Joselu, whilst both Rolando Aarons and Jacob Murphy had minor support as well.

The one change supporters did go for, was Jonjo Shelvey narrowly getting the pick ahead of Ayoze Perez in the number 10 position.
