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

We put together a list of the 20 players who could potentially be selected for this 8pm Monday night kick-off.

The choice of the starting eleven was overwhelming in all but one position, with very few supporters doubting which players should make up most of the side.

Any significant competition for places in the team smashed by injuries to Muto, Shelvey and Lascelles who look to only have an outside chance of making the bench, whilst Lejeune, Dummett and Sterry are definitely out.

Eight Newcastle players getting at least 95% of Newcastle fans selecting them.

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

Then another two selections had at least 82% of supporters picking them, Perez (82%) and Diame (87%).

The only contentious position was left-back in Paul Dummett’s absence.

Ciaran Clark (51%) getting just over half the fans selecting him, whilst Maquillo had 22% and Lazaar 15%.

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

    I see Manquillo has signed up to #Ifrafagoeswego

  • Kenny

    3 of our best players missing but i still think we can get a result. 2-1,
    but a draw isn`t the end of the world

    • Leazes.

      Manquillo isn’t wanted by 4 out of 5 votes yet is included……strange interpretation of the results

  • Paul Patterson

    5-3-2.

    • Leazes.

      = 0

      • Paul Patterson

        Hang on, I’ll check . .

        • KennySamsung

          Could be a minus figure, if you finish the 2. (point) something

      • Kenny

        😂😂😂

      • Peaky

        🤣😂🤣😂

  • Mrkgw

    Manquillo? What the hell……!

    • Ram Kishore

      He was Decent against Manchester united.
      Clark won’t be playing for sure.
      So he’s gonna be the obvious choice

      • HarryHype59

        He was woeful against Cardiff!

        • Ram Kishore

          Yeah was bad. Let’s hope he puts in a good performance like he did against Manchester

  • KennySamsung

    Obvious result considering the rest are jnjured or are coming back from an injury, pointless excercise! have I just mentioned the word ‘pointless’? should have used the word useless.

  • X2

    Heck yeah. It’s almost as if we’re a proper football club trying to do the best we can.

  • steve

    I can see Kenedy playing at left back with Atsu in front of him

    • Toontaff

      A scary vision!

  • Wor Lass

    51% Clark, 22% Manquillo so the obvious pick is …. Manquillo?! How does that work? Personally, I wouldn`t have either of them at left back – I`d go with three at the back and Kenedy at left wing back.

    • Rich Lawson

      Yes,I’m sat here puzzled how that % puts Manquillo in as well ?
