Fans choice of Newcastle team v Bournemouth – Overwhelming selection

2 years ago

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

We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this 3pm Saturday afternoon kick-off.

The choice of the starting eleven was overwhelming, with very few supporters doubting what side should start the game.

Any significant competition for places in the team smashed by injuries to Muto, Shelvey and Lascelles, plus Lejeune who is long-term injured.

A massive nine Newcastle players getting at least 93% of Newcastle fans selecting them.

These were Kenedy (100%), Dubravka (99%), Schar (98%), Rondon (97%), Ki (96%), Yedlin (95%), Dummett (97%), Fernandez (93%) and Ritchie (93%).

Then even the other two selections had over three quarters of supporters picking them, Perez (82%) and Diame (76%).

The next highest contender was Sean Longstaff (22%) who hasn’t even made his Premier League debut yet.

Newcastle United”s squad strength looking wafer thin.
