Fans choice of this Newcastle team v Brighton

3 years ago

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

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

On Friday morning, Steve Bruce indicated that three players were set to be named in the squad after fitness/injury problems/concerns.

The Head Coach saying that Fabian Schar, Allan Saint-Maximin and Andy Carroll are all set to be available today.

Seven Newcastle players getting 90% or more support from the fans to be in the side today.

Manquillo is preferred to Krafth, whilst Atsu and Shelvey are the two other players most at risk of being voted out of the starting eleven.

Supporters no doubt taking into account that after being out through injury, both Carroll and Saint-Maximin are unlikely to be in a position to start the game, not ideally anyway…

This is how the Newcastle team v Brighton 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.
