Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Watford on Saturday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 23 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Rafa Benitez confirmed on Friday afternoon that everybody is available apart from Clark,  Sterry and Lejeune.

A massive match on Saturday with Bournemouth at home then seven days later.

Rafa Benitez on Friday at his press conference:

“Clark is fine (after being ill). He was not in the squad (at Southampton) but has trained for the last two days (but still isn’t ready to return).

“Lejeune has done some warm ups with the team, so is getting better.

“Everybody is available for Watford apart from Lejeune and Sterry (and Clark).

‘We have to be positive. The teams in the bottom 3 at this stage last season weren’t there at the end of the season.

“I was not happy with the performance (at Southampton) but I was happy with the point, we are very close to getting that first win.

“If we win our first game then everything will be different.

“Is it a must win?

“I am confident we can do it this week but if we don’t…what can we do?

“We will keep on going.”
