We have put together a list of the 22 players who could potentially be selected on Sunday afternoon.

Rafa Benitez indicated on Friday that Jesus Gamez and Florian Lejeune the only players definitely ruled out through injury.

However, the United boss said that Islam Slimani would have a late fitness test to see if he has fully recovered from a thigh injury.

So who would be in your Newcastle team v Crystal Palace for this real relegation fight six-pointer?

    let`s hope SloMo has batteries included like the last couple of games & not revert to lumbering around the pitch. Kenedy looks full of busy & i think Dwight will start with the Hoss left in his stall, as for the rest owt can happen with Rafa

    • thewildchimp

      He often has batteries but comes without brakes… Just rushing along past the attacker like a jet on autopilot.

  • Paul Murphy

    Paul Dummett is not listed

    • Peaky Magpie

      And unfortunately The Hoss is…..

  • Paul Patterson

    Can’t pick Paul Dummett.
    Darlow
    Dummett
    Yadlin
    Lascelles
    Clark
    Diame
    Merino
    Kenedy
    Atsu
    Shelvey
    Gayle
    It’s probably our best side, but Rafa won’t.

  • Geordiegiants

    Dummett needs to be listed.

    • Peaky Magpie

      The Hoss needs to be abducted….

        🐴 🔫
        Hoss needs to be put down

        • Wor Lass

          My missus met his parents once – she used to work in a glue factory.

  • TheTradge

    I’d go 3-4-3, with Lascelles, Clark and Dummett at the back, with Yedlin and Manquillo as wing backs, Merino and Diame in the centre, and Kenedy and Atsu supporting Slimani in the middle.

    • Mike Adam

      Like your idea, but Mbemba instead of Manquillo for me in that set up.

      • Wor Lass

        Mbemba`s no 1 on the schitt list now that Mitro`s away.

  • Geordie Pete Moore

    As long as Joselu isnt even on the bench I will trust in Rafa

  • Wor Lass

    What`s the point of this if important players aren`t listed – is Dummy injured or is it just an oversight? I`d start Kenedy on the left rather than Atsu and I`d drop Clark who hasn`t looked convincing to me this season. I wouldn`t let Jonjo loose near johan Kebab`s late tackles – he`s bound to retaliate and get sent off (after calling him a smelly Frog then denying it!) If he`s fit, I`d start Slimani, otherwise Gayle: Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Mbemba, Dummett, Diame, Merino, Murphy, Kenedy, Slimani, Perez.

    Useless team totally useless …. most mismanagement of a club ever. Choose 11 blokes from the pick and mix of Sainsbury’s and you would have a better team.
