We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Tottenham?
We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this 8pm Wednesday night kick-off.
Rafa Benitez confirming that as well as the suspended Islam Slimani, Christian Atsu and Ciaran Clark are both still out injured.
I definitely get the sense that the fans share the same frustrations as Rafa Benitez, recognising the need to make changes but struggling to see who can improve a team who have lost their last three matches.
The supporters have gone for the usual eleven (see below) but Mikel Merino is the one player who supporters wouldn’t mind seeing back in the team.
He had 55% support before the Watford match but only given four minutes by Rafa at the end, clearly wasn’t fit enough to start.
Tonight he has 53% backing and could be included.
So this is the fans choice team:
Here is the percentage (rounded up or down to nearest whole number) support for each player from the thousands of votes cast:
97% Jamaal Lascelles
96% Martin Dubravka
91% DeAndre Yedlin
90% Matt Ritchie
88% Jonjo Shelvey
87% Florian Lejeune
86% Ayoze Perez
81% Paul Dummett
79% Mohamed Diame
66% Dwight Gayle
53% Mikel Merino
22% Chancel Mbemba
16% Jacob Murphy
13% Isaac Hayden
9% Massadio Haidara
6% Javier Manquillo
4% Rob Elliot
4% Jesus Gamez
2% Karl Darlow
