Fans choice of the Newcastle team v Norwich

1 year ago

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

We put together a list of the 20 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

On Friday lunchtime, Steve Bruce indicated that five players definitely missed out.

Florian Lejeune, DeAndre Yedlin, Andy Carroll, Christian Atsu and Dwight Gayle.

He also said that Allan Saint-Maximin had a ‘slight hamstring problem and that his availability at Norwich depended on him coming through training ok on Friday.

Some interesting selection dilemmas with new players coming in and others leaving, others on the injured list.

This is how the Newcastle team v Norwich looks, based on the fan votes (a suggested formation to fit in the 11 selected).

With then the percentage votes (rounded up/down to nearest whole number) for each of the 20 players.
