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

We have put together a list of the 22 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Two teams badly out of form and looking to use the game to find a victory to get the season on track.

When talking about the injury/fitness situation on Friday, Head Coach Steve Bruce said that there were three players definitely ruled out.

“Florian Lejeune will play again at Aston Villa on Monday night (for the Under 23).

“Hopefully he will get 75 or 80 minutes in that one.

“We have another international break coming up and hopefully after that he’ll be available.

Fabian Schar could be OK for Bournemouth.

“He has been sore with his knee for a while but we don’t think it’s too serious.

Andy Carroll has trained the last couple of days, so he will come back into the squad.

“It’s still too early for Matt Ritchie.”

The only other player definitely not involved being Sean Longstaff, the midfielder serving the first game of a three match suspension picked up due to a red card against Wolves.

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