Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Leicester on Friday night?

We have put together a list of the 24 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle looking for a first away win since beating Huddersfield in December.

A victory would take the Magpies to more or less certain safety from relegation.

On Thursday lunchtime, Rafa Benitez confirmed that only the two players were ruled out, as Mohamed Diame was ok after a hip problem.

Rafa Benitez pre-Leicester press conference:

We have to do our job on Friday and win the game if we can. It’s one game at a time.

“(Leicester) are a very good team.

“They are playing with more confidence now and it will be tough for us, for sure.

“We must approach every game with confidence, calm, and the belief that we can do it.

“Now we have five games and we have to think of every one like a final, as we have said many times.

“We have Lejeune injured, Longstaff too, and the rest of the players are available.”

“Diame had a problem with his hip but is fine now. He was training and it’s OK.
