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

We put together a list of the 22 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

On Friday lunchtime, Rafa Benitez said that the only players out injured are Sean Longstaff, Jamaal Lascelles and Rob Elliot.

Whilst Fabian Schar misses this one and Arsenal away due to suspension.

A very clear cut decision this time for Newcastle fans.

A combination of form and players such as Lascelles, Longstaff and Schar missing out, helping to bring about an overwhelming collective vote.

Eight players still getting over 90% – Ritchie, Rondon, Dubravka, Almiron, Lejeune, Perez, Yedlin and Fernandez.

Lejeune (86%) and Yedlin (84%) also getting better than four in five people backing.

Then making up the team are Hayden (85%), Dummett (83%) and finally, Shelvey (85%).

The next distant highest were Ki (25%) and Clark (22%).

Shelvey’s very good cameo off the bench last week against Everton and Ki’s poor display, helping to decide that issue, Diame only 18%.

Whilst fans generally going for a back four and ruling Ciaran Clark out as a third central defender.

This is how the Newcastle team v Bournemouth looks according to the fans choice, with percentage votes for each player:

99% Salomon Rondon

99% Martin Dubravka

97% Florian Lejeune

96% Miguel Almiron

95% Ayoze Perez

94% Matt Ritchie

91% DeAndre Yedlin

91% Federico Fernandez

85% Isaac Hayden

83% Paul Dummett

82% Jonjo Shelvey

25% Ki Sung-yeung

22% Ciaran Clark

18% Mohamed Diame

10% Javier Manquillo

5% Yoshinori Muto

5% Kenedy

5% Antonio Barreca

4% Christian Atsu

1% Karl Darlow

0% Joselu

0% Freddie Woodman
