Fans choice of the Newcastle team v Leicester City

1 year ago

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

We put together a list of the 21 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

On Tuesday morning, Steve Bruce indicated that as many as 10 players could/would definitely miss out.

Florian Lejeune, DeAndre Yedlin, Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle are long-term injured.

He also said that Allan Saint-Maximin was ruled out with a recurrence of his hamstring problem.

As well as those five, the NUFC Head Coach pointed to Joelinton, Atsu, Lascelles, Almiron and Schar also set to be missing.

This is how the Newcastle team v Leicester looks in terms of the 11 with the highest fan votes.

Rolando Aarons just edging out Ki, Hayden and Sean Longstaff for the final space in the team.

With then the percentage votes (rounded up/down to nearest whole number) for each of the 21 players.

95% Muto

91% Fernandez

84% Shelvey

83% Clark

80% Willems

75% Dummett

75% Matty Longstaff

68% Ritchie

62% Manquillo

61% Dubravka

57% Aarons

56% Ki

52% Sean Longstaff

51% Hayden

40% Krafth

38% Darlow

11% Saivet

10% Sterry

8% Colback

7% Lazaar

1% Elliot

From the fan choices I am guessing you would have a 5-2-3 (5-2-2-1) formation to suit the players selected.

With Dubravka in goal, Clark, Fernandez and Dummett as three centre-backs, Manquillo and Willems as wing-backs.

Shelvey and Matty Longstaff as central midfielders, with Ritchie and Aarons supporting Muto.
