Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Leicester on Saturday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 23 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Rafa Benitez confirmed earlier today that he had a whole squad to choose from, apart from Islam Slimani who can’t play against his parent club.

Rafa Benitez press conference:

“We don’t have any (injury) problems.

“Slimani obviously can’t play, Joselu has recovered so he’s nearly fully fit, so more or less everyone is available.”

Mohamed Diame was also passed fit to play, with his substitution against Huddersfield turning out to be just a precaution.

So who would be in your Newcastle v Leicester team as NUFC could potentially move into the top half of the table if they win?

    • Peaky

      He probably wouldn’t even vote for himself…

  • Danimal

    Bobbi ‘don’t stop me I’m Clarko and Ghost’s keeper here at the Monkseaton cult HQ’ would not vote for any players. There is only one hero at our club, stand up (if you can you barrel of malignant lard) Mr Michael Ashley!!!! Slurp slurp. Slobber slobber.

    Can I take it, given Lascelles, Dummett. Lejeune, Ritchie and yedlin haven’t got 100% backing to start, that the mum’s of some of the other players also read this site…?

    It’s been a long time since I’ve seen us this consistent. I might not be able to predict the score but I’m almost certain we will perform. Every player will put in a shift and do their job. We’ll keep our shape whenever we are defending and the team will stick to the plan right until the final whistle.
    Even SBR didn’t have such a united dressing room. Despite the fact the fringe players aren’t seeing much action.
    And zero injuries? I can’t ever remember that happening.
    Our squad might have been the cheapest in the league last August but by the time the season is over it will have increased significantly .
    What a genius Rafa is!
