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

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 four players definitely missed out.

Long-term injured Florian Lejeune and Sean Longstaff joined by Miguel Almiron (hamstring) and Jamaal Lascelles (illness).
