Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Arsenal on Sunday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 24 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Rafa Benitez confirmed earlier today that he had a whole squad to choose from, with Islam Slimani now available after not being able to play against parent club Leicester last weekend.

Rafa Benitez press conference:

“Everybody has been training, so it’s good news.

“It’s always important to have competition but then you have to leave some players out of the squad.

“To be fair, it has been really good.

“When you are at the bottom of the table and start winning as we have been, you cannot wish for better things.

“We are doing well and hopefully we can carry on.

“In January, when we brought Dúbravka and Kenedy in, they gave us competition so everyone was trying harder.

“That was a key factor. The mentality is good.”

Newcastle are now tenth on 38 points, 10 clear of relegation and now clear to have a real go at the likes of Arsenal.

So who would be in your Newcastle v Arsenal team as NUFC try to end a run of 13 years without a home win over the Gunners.
