Fans choice of Newcastle team v Huddersfield

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

We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

The Newcastle boss has to make at least one change with DeAndre Yedlin suspended after his red card.

Rafa does though get back Fabian Schar who missed the Wolves game after picking up five yellows.

Newcastle have confirmed that Darlow, Sterry, Shelvey, Fernandez and Lejeune are all missing as well through injury.

There are nine clear automatic selections by supporters, Newcastle players getting at least 85% backing.

These were Kenedy (91%), Ritchie (91%), Dubravka (98%), Rondon (99%), Ki (96%), Schar (94%), Diame (85%), Dummett (92%) and Lascelles (90%).

Interesting to see Fabian Schar as the highest rated defender on his return from suspension, ahead of the likes of Dummett and Lascelles.

The other two fan selections were a little more contested.

Ciaran Clark (64%) makes the fan choice team, ahead of Manquillo (32%).

Completing the line-up, Yoshinori Muto (59%) is preferred, despite Ayoze Perez (38%) having scored last weekend against Wolves.

This is how the team would look based on the Newcastle fan votes (percentage support for all players below), their choice meaning I have put Fabian Schar at right-back with no other obvious contenders:
