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

We put together a list of the 25 players who could potentially be selected for this 3pm Saturday afternoon kick-off.

Yet again, the same seven players getting 90% or better backing from the Newcastle supporters: Shelvey (98%), Lascelles (95%), Dubravka (96%), Yedlin (92%), Ritchie (94%), Dummett (93%) and Rondon (95%).

Whilst some are positive choices, you have to also accept that the strength of the support is often due to next to no competition.

Such as Joselu only getting 8% to rival Rondon, Manquillo on 2% to challenge Yedlin, and Lazaar on 1% competing with Dummett.

The less decisive choices making up the rest of the team see Kenedy (81%) and Fernandez (77%) chosen by around four in every five fans.

Murphy (22%) and Atsu (7%) offer minimal competition for the wing positions and despite disappointing so far this season, Newcastle have to persevere with Kenedy.

Centre-back is one of the few positions where there is half-decent competition, Fernandez has impressed though and comfortably keeps out Clark (22%) and Schar (19%).

Diame (73%) hasn’t reached the heights of earlier this year but Ki is way behind on 22%, whilst Hayden (4%) was shocking last weekend against Arsenal.

The final player to make the fans’ team is Yoshinori Muto (49%).

Last week Ayoze Perez edged it but after yet another very poor display last weekend, fans would rather blindly hope Muto can show something if given the chance.

Here is the percentage (rounded up or down to nearest whole number) support for each Newcastle player from the thousands of votes cast:
