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

We put together a list of the 22 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

On Friday morning, Steve Bruce indicated that four 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 Sean Longstaff is suspended.

Schar is also still absent for Newcastle after picking up a knee injury at Chelsea.

A selection this time that couldn’t really be more clear cut when it comes to the Newcastle fan selections.

Seven NUFC players getting 91% or more fans supporting them.

Whilst the very lowest of the 11 chosen is 85% support for both Hayden and Yedlin.

Of those to miss the cut, Matty Longstaff is highest with only 31% of supporters selecting him.

Obviously the result at West Ham and first 50 or so minutes of that performance will have played a bigĀ  part in these selections from fans.

Things will get more interesting when we have the likes of Schar, Lejeune, Ritchie and Sean Longstaff back in contention.

This is how the Newcastle team v Bournemouth 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 22 players.
