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

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

Rafa Benitez confirmed on Friday afternoon that everybody is available apart from Ki who is on international duty and Clark & Darlow who are injured.

The manager also saying that he is targeting the FA Cup match next Saturday for Florian Lejeune to get back into first team action.

Rafa Benitez on Friday at his press conference:

“Clark and Darlow are still not available.

“The rest are available, including Jonjo Shelvey.

“We have to be stronger mentally and show more character to stay in the game.

“We showed last year (Christmas/New Year) we could cope with the intensity and the number of games, and I am expecting something similar this year.

“I think we are capable of managing if we focus and understand everything we have to do.

“To get three points will be massive – we’ll be in a much better position in the table.
