Fans choice of Newcastle team v Wolves for Monday night

2 years ago

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

We put together a list of the 24 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

On Friday lunchtime, Rafa Benitez said that the only players definitely not available were Jonjo Shelvey and Rob Elliot.

Nine players received 77% support or more from the Newcastle fans.

Amongst them was Miguel Almiron with 79% of supporters thinking he should start against Wolves.

On Friday we asked the question, who would Newcastle fans choose for a must win game if everybody was fit and we have included those percentage votes in brackets below, after the ones for v Wolves tonight. When it was a case of everybody fully fit, 96% of Newcastle fans went for Almiron.

The two more contentious selections tonight for the fans, were Ayoze Perez getting into the team with only 47% – the 10th highest, then 11th highest was Mohamed Diame with 46%.

This is how the Newcastle team v Wolves could look according to the fans choice, with percentage votes for each player below that.

(In the voting for bets 11 with everybody fit, 59% went for Jonjo Shelvey and 0% for Rob Elliot)
