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:

    not sure I have the stomach to watch any of this afternoon’s blood letting

  • Wezza

    Just saying but Gayle and Mitrovic scored today!
    Anyways, I’ve got a feeling it may be tight for a while may end 1-0 2-1. Might as well just have a go.

    • Kenny

      Mitrovich again, so much for the doubters on here,
      Geordiegiants will be over the moon

      • steve

        He could score 20 this season and they’ll still say he isn’t premier league quality.

        • Kenny

          when he signed for Fulham i said on here that he would get 15 goals this season

  • Philippines

    Since his Fulham debut in February, Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored more goals in English league football than any other player.

  • Peaky

    Bet Man City try and poach the prolific Hoss today…..thebastards…..
