Which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Manchester City?

We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected on Wednesday night.

Jonjo Shelvey has now completed his two match suspension and is available.

Rafa Benitez has confirmed that Jesus Games and Aleksandar Mitrovic are definitely out, whilst it is almost definitely the same case with Florian Lejeune who has an unspecified knock/injury.

However, the United boss says that Mikel Merino and Isaac Hayden do have a chance of playing, after missing West Ham due to picking up knocks in the lead up to the match at the London Stadium.

After the excellent win at West Ham, can Rafa work his magic….but who would you choose?

    The key tomorrow night is the space between our back four or five and our midfield which is where De Bruyne and David Silva do damage 9 times out of 10. If we close that space give them no room and remain disciplined we do stand a chance.HTL

      You`re dead right but then every team that plays City must know that. The trick is actually being able to do it! It`s not impossible but those boys are world class – and then there`s the little matter of containing the likes of Aguero, Sane, Jesus, Walker, Fernandinho, Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Foden ….

    Id have to go with the stereotype and ultra defensive. With 5 at the back. Clark. Lascelles. Mbemba. Then yedlin and manny wing backs. Id go for diame and saivet again in the middle with atsu and ritchie then gayle on his own.

    If we get a chance to break then ee have a bit of pace but otherwise just try to keep the score down coz city arent slowing down.

    I am absolutely amazed at the reaction of our fans, there is a real expectation we can get something from Abu Citeh.
