Fans choice of Newcastle team v Swansea for today’s match

6 years ago

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

The collective formation chosen was 4-2-3-1 with fans going for Joselu (80% support) as the sole striker and Dwight Gayle only making the bench.

In support, there is a trio of Matt Ritchie, Jonjo Shelvey and Christian Atsu.

The two wingers/wide men did well against West Ham but Ayoze Perez was once again a passenger and the number 10 position proving a constant weakness. Newcastle fans wanting to give Shelvey a try there in the absence of any other alternatives (unless moving Ritchie inside), to hopefully make Newcastle a bigger threat going forward.

Having impressed together in that victory over the Hammers, Isaac Hayden and Mikel Merino were the overwhelming choice in the middle of the pitch.

At the back, Rob Elliot gets the vote, although over 40% would go for Karl Darlow – the feeling appearing to be that there is little between them.

However, in front of the Irish international there is a major shake-up from last time out.

With both Yedlin and Lejeune set to be available, fans have heavily supported the inclusion of both, with Lejeune partnering Ciaran Clark (almost 100% support for him) and Manquillo switching to left-back to accommodate Yedlin and fill the gap left by Mbemba’s injury.
