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

We put together a list of the 22 players who could potentially be selected for this 3pm Saturday afternoon kick-off.

The response was pretty overwhelming.

Eight Newcastle players getting 93% of Newcastle fans selecting them.

These were Shelvey (98%), Lascelles (96%), Dubravka (97%), Kenedy (96%), Muto (95%), Yedlin (93%), Dummett (93%) and Ritchie (96%).

The two that stand out there are Muto and Kenedy.

After their performances and goals at Old Trafford, Muto joins this elite group in terms of selection by fans, whilst Kenedy returns to it, having looked against Man Utd more like the player he was last season.

Next in line was Fernandez who got a very high 86% support, Schar (22%) next best in terms of central defenders, having done well for Switzerland in the international break.

Mohamed Diame (71%) continues to not particularly impress but not great options elsewhere (Ki 20%, the inexperienced Longstaff 17%Hayden 5%).

Whilst Perez (64%) completes the fan choice eleven.

Did a little better at Old Trafford but once again, the absence of not back to full fitness Rondon and no other real other alternatives (17%), look to be the main factors in the former Tenerife striker being included.

This is how the team would look based on the Newcastle fan votes (percentage support for all players below):
