Fans choice of Newcastle team v Brighton for today
We asked you the question earlier…Which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Brighton?
We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected on Saturday afternoon at St James Park.
Jesus Gamez, Rob Elliot and Florian Lejeune all missing.
There were 10 players with 72% fan support or better, with Jamaal Lascelles (99%) once again topping the voting.
Gayle (95%), Atsu (92%), Ritchie (93%), Clark (78%) and Merino (94%) were all rested/left out against Manchester City but they are amongst the seven players with the highest ratings.
DeAndre Yedlin (93%) has impressed recently whilst fans have also gone for Dummett (72%) and Shelvey (72%) after they played against Man City.
Karl Darlow (77%) is predictably the choice in goal but with Freddie Woodman picking up 23% support, Darlow hasn’t exactly got unanimous support with Elliot injured.
Supporters once again struggled to pick a clear 11th choice, Chancel Mbemba (43%) getting the vote despite a minority of fans choosing him.
