Which 11 players would you pick in Newcastle team v Watford?

We have put together a list of the 20 players who could potentially be selected on Saturday.

Isaac Hayden is suspended and the likes of Paul Dummett, Christian Atsu, and Jamaal Lascelles, have all been left out of the list as they are set to miss the game through injury.

However, Rafa Benitez has confirmed on Friday afternoon that Mikel Merino is in the squad tomorrow.

Watford are an attacking team and so should guarantee an open game, the question being how will the manager counter the Watford threat and create chances of our own.

On the back of three defeats, all eyes will be on Rafa’s teamsheet, but who would you choose?

Pick your 11 players below:

  • Andy Mac

    I’d pick the eleven best available players at the club so they feel comfortable in their role and that would probably require at least two ressie’s

    Yedlin, Mbemba, Clark, Haidara
    Merino, Shelvey
    Ritchie, Perez, Atsu

    On the bench I’d go with youngsters wherever possible.
    Elliot, Sterry, Lejeune, Barlaser, Charman

    Let’s face it this squad is threadbare.

      Atsu injured, Mbemba and Clark give us little in the air at the back as a partnership. Haidara?? Now I know you’re joking

      • Andy Mac

        I admit I was slightly the worse for wear. Sometimes its not good to air opinions when half cut 🙄
