Fans choice of Newcastle team v Manchester City on Saturday
We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Manchester City?
We put together a list of the 20 players who could potentially be selected for this 5.30pm Saturday afternoon kick-off.
Newcastle having lost in every one of their last nine Premier League matches here..
This time Rafa Benitez is without:
Isaac Hayden suspended.
Florian Lejeune, Javier Manquillo, Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie injured.
Some very strong choices, with six players viewed as automatic selections this afternoon: Martin Dubravka (98%), Jamaal Lascelles (97%), Paul Dummett (94%), DeAndre Yedlin (94%), Rondon and Diame both 93%.
Despite a couple of very poor performances Kenedy still has 77% support, whilst fans go for Fernandez (71%) to complete a back four alongside Lascelles, with Ciaran Clark (40%) and Fabian Schar (37%) trailing behind.
Ki (68%) is well supported to play alongside Diame, whilst Murphy (63%) and Perez (60%) also get decent backing to complete the team.
Yoshinori Muto (44%) is the 12th man as he continues to come to terms with the Premier League.
In truth, a few key injuries have already exposed the sheer lack of depth in this Newcastle squad.
So this is the fans choice team:
