Fans choice of the Newcastle team v Tottenham

1 year ago

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

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

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

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

He also said that Allan Saint-Maximin and Christian Atsu had been back training this week after injury, although Atsu has been out of action far longer than the French winger.

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

This is how the Newcastle team v Tottanham 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 21 players.

98% Martin Dubravka
