We asked fans who’d be in their Newcastle team v Manchester United – Very interesting outcome

4 years ago

Yesterday we asked you the question…Which 11 players would you pick in Newcastle team v Manchester United?

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

The likes of Mikel Merino, Paul Dummett, Christian Atsu, and Jamaal Lascelles, all left out of the list as they are widely reported to be missing the game through injury.

We had seven players that got 88% or more backing from Newcastle supporters, the likes of Florian Lejeune, Ciaran Clark and Isaac Hayden seeing their places cemented for certain by injuries to Lascelles and Merino.

We then though maybe get to the more interesting/contentious ones….

Aleksandar Mitrovic is eighth highest with 79%, though fans would also have Dwight Gayle (62%) in the team.

With Atsu set to miss out, Rolando Aarons (65%) is the big choice to play ahead of Murphy (21%) or Perez (38%) who could also potentially play there.

Then we have the problematic left-back position. Paul Dummett is still some weeks away from returning and after doing well there until dropped totally from the squad, Chancel Mbemba (63%) is the clear fan choice to play at Old Trafford.

Here is the percentage support for each player from the thousands of votes cast, then an image of how this fan selected team would potentially look:

99% Jonjo Shelvey

99% Matt Ritchie

98% DeAndre Yedlin

95% Rob Elliot

94% Florian Lejeune
