4 years ago

We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Liverpool?

We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected on Saturday teatime at Anfield.

The fans have made 10 players overwhelming choices with all of them attracting 80% or more fan support.

You have nine of the team who started at Bournemouth, plus Mikel Merino coming in for the injured Shelvey.

The Spaniard gets massive support and is the third most popular pick with 94% of supporters choosing him.

The 11th place in the team is a very close run thing and nothing approaching a clear and strong choice.

Very little separated three players for the final position, Ayoze Perez with 33% and both Christian Atsu and Jacob Murphy on 38%, though with the former Norwich star having just a couple more votes (all players are rounded up or down to a full %).

Here is the percentage support for each player from the thousands of votes cast:

96% Jamaal Lascelles
