Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle United team v Manchester United on Wednesday night?
We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.
Rafa has already said that Florian Lejeune is being aimed at the Blackburn FA Cup match.
Ki Sung-yeung also misses as he is now off preparing for the Asian Cup with South Korea.
After a decent performance and confidence steadying result at Watford, a point or better here would be a big bonus.
After a perfect 100% record in November, the Manager of the Month curse struck.
Seven games in December bringing only one win and six point from a possible 21.
With six changes to his team that took on Liverpool and then a further three for the game at Watford, Rafa Benitez has shown a willingness to use his squad over the festive period, so we await with interest his selection tonight.
In the meantime though, who would you choose to start?
