Fans choice of Newcastle team v Stoke

4 years ago

We asked you the question earlier…Which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Stoke?

We put together a list of the players who could potentially be selected on Monday afternoon at the bet365 Stadium.

A second game within 48 hours, a game Newcastle desperately need to win and one they can’t afford to lose for sure.

Once more Newcastle fans have made 10 clear choices, each of them getting at least 71% support.

Supporters have  gone for the same back five as Saturday, with Lascelles (99%) and Clark (87%) in the middle, with Karl Darlow (88%) strengthening his position after the clean sheet.

At full back, Yedlin (91%) is once again an overwhelming choice, although Paul Dummett (71%) has only the 10th highest support.

Up front, Dwight Gayle (93%) is the choice with wingers Atsu (89%) and Ritchie (75%) in support, despite both struggling against Brighton, along with pretty much all the rest of the front six.

In the middle of the pitch, Merino (91%) gets the third highest of all the support from fans, with Shelvey (74%) alongside him.

Finding the 11th choice tricky once again, this time Henri Saivet sneaks into the team even though only having 47% of supporters selecting him. He edges out Chancel Mbemba (41%).
