Fans choice of this Newcastle team v Wolves

1 year ago

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

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 five players were definitely ruled out.

The Head Coach saying that Matt Ritchie and Florian Lejeune are still working their way back to full fitness, whilst Isaac Hayden is suspended.

Both Carroll and Schar are also absent after picking up injuries at Chelsea

An interesting selection this time, with eight players getting 82% or better support from Newcastle fans.

As usual Martin Dubravka is at the top (97% support), followed by Lascelles (96%) and Saint-Maximin (96%).

Then we have the Longstaff brothers on 95% (Sean) and 91% (Matty).

You have Almiron on 79% and Joelinton with 74% retaining their places, leaving one position to fill.

In the eyes of the votingĀ  Newcastle fans, this ended up in the tightest possible contest between keeping a back five or going more attacking with another striker.

Dwight Gayle (61%) just edging out Paul Dummett (60%), meaning that in this team selection of players, Willems would be left-back.

This is how the Newcastle team v Wolves looks based on the fan votes with suggested formation from the 11 picked, then the percentage votes (rounded up/down to nearest whole number) for each of the 21 players.
