Fans choice of Newcastle team v Everton – Some very strong selections!

4 years ago

Earlier today we asked you the question…Which 11 players would you pick in Newcastle team v Everton?

We put together a list of the 23 players who could potentially be selected on Wednesday night.

Paul Dummett still unavailable but Jamaal Lascelles and Christian Atsu both set to play…if selected.

He may have been left out by Rafa Benitez for the last three matches but Jonjo Shelvey (98%) gets your almost unanimous support to make the team tonight.

Three other players get 90% or better, with captain Lascelles (95%) expected to return to the starting eleven, whilst Mikel Merino (91%) still gets overwhelming support despite struggling with most of the rest of them against Leicester.

Easily Newcastle’s best player at the weekend and scoring his third goal n his last four matches, no surprise to see Dwight Gayle (90%) so highly rated.

You then drop down to three in four Newcastle supporters picking the next trio of players.

Christian Atsu (77%) impressing as a sub against Leicester and surely set to start, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (76%) and Ciaran Clark (76%) still comfortably make the team, especially with few other viable options, Florian Lejeune (31%) having struggled.

Another trio of players then get very similar (65%-68%) support, with Chancel Mbemba (68%) selected at left-back and Manquillo (20% ) way back after another poor showing.

Matt Ritchie (67%) has slipped in popularity from regularly being one of the highest rated and it would be a big call if it was Ritchie dropped rather than Jacob Murphy (32%) to make way for Atsu.

It is now Karl Darlow’s (35%) turn to suffer after a poor performance, the first goal especially soft, Rob Elliot (65%) once again the default choice in the absence of any other.

As usual, fans find a place for Mitrovic (59%) although his is only the 11th highest percentage support, Joselu only 15% despite his goal, whilst Perez was poor and shocking for the winning goal, so no surprise he picks up only 13% support.

Here is the percentage support for each player from the thousands of votes cast and in brackets the fan support/vote for the team selection v Leicester last Saturday, then an image of how this fan selected team would potentially look:
