Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Wolves on Sunday 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 to get out of the relegation zone, especially with three of the following four games being away at West Ham and Villa plus a home game with Man City – the other match is home to Bournemouth.

When talking about the injury/fitness situation on Friday, Head Coach Steve Bruce said that there were four players ruled out through injury and/or lack of fitness.

“The good news is that Flo (Lejeune) is close to a return and so is Matt Ritchie as well.

“He’s been bouncing around the training ground all week.

“They (Carroll and Schar injuries) are not serious at all.

“Andy picked up a groin strain last Saturday and Fab has a bit of a sore knee that he’s been playing with for a few weeks.

They’ll not be fit for Sunday.”

The only other player definitely not involved being Isaac Hayden, the midfielder serving the final game of a three match suspension picked up due to a red card at Leicester City.

So can Steve Bruce’s eleven get the victory needed to get NUFC out of the relegation zone?
