Fans choice of Newcastle team v Burnley for Monday night

4 years ago

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

The collective formation chosen was 4-2-3-1 with fans going for a team featuring a couple of changes from the team that beat Crystal Palace 1-0.

After posting a clean sheet and solid defensive display which allowed Palace no efforts on target, no surprise to see Newcastle fans wanting to stick with the same back four in front of Rob Elliot.

Changes though have been made, in terms of the fan wish list, further up the pitch.

Rafa Benitez has said that Gayle, Joselu and Mitrovic are all fighting for the striker’s spot and Newcastle fans resoundingly went for Mitro with just under 60% choosing him, the rest more or less equally split between Gayle and Joselu.

Matt Ritchie is/was a no-brainer, whilst Christian Atsu also easily made the supporter eleven, with little competition from the likes of Jacob Murphy, or forgotten man Rolando Aarons.

As for the dilemma of which two of Shelvey, Hayden, and Merino, to play – Newcastle fans have gone with all three.

Both Merino and Shelvey scoring well over 90% support and Isaac Hayden not far behind. Very little support for Ayoze Perez to stay in the team, or for Mohamed Diame to replace him – despite the Senegalese midfielder doing ok as sub when coming on against Palace.

Rafa Benitez went with an unchanged team though against Crystal Palace, will he confound us all and go for playing that line-up again?
