Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Brighton on Saturday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

A massive game even though it is so early in the season, Newcastle needing the points and the confidence a win against a likely relegation rval would bring.

When talking about the injury/fitness situation on Friday, Steve Bruce said:

“A fit Andy Carroll is going to be huge and great for us going forward.

“As long as he (Allan Saint-Maximin) comes through today then he’s in contention as well.

“As long as he (Andy Carroll) comes through today okay – touch wood he will – he will be involved, which is good news at the top end of the pitch.

“Certainly the return of Andy and Allan Saint-Maximin will give us something that can only benefit us.

“Sean Longstaff’s not going to make it unfortunately – maybe the end of next week (then Matt Ritchie a week later).

“Fabian Schar’s okay, it was cramp, so that’s good news for us.”

So Matt Ritchie, Dwight Gayle, DeAndre Yedlin, Sean Longstaff and Florian Lejeune set to be the five who are definitely missing.

Better news on Schar, Carroll and Saint-Maximin.
