Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Arsenal on Sunday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 23 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle come into this match on a dreadful run of only four wins in twenty four matches, though two of those victories have came in the last three matches.

Ahead of Sunday’s match, Steve Bruce gave an update on the injury and fitness front.

The Head Coach revealing that five Newcastle players miss Arsenal, with question marks on two of them.

Karl Darlow and Ryan Fraser still recovering from operations.

Whilst Isaac Hayden and Jamaal Lascelles are set to miss the rest of the campaign with their long-term injuries.

Joe Willock another definitely missing, as he can’t play against his own club (Arsenal).

More positive news see Steve Bruce confirm that Callum Wilson is fully fit and available to start.

Whilst he also said that Matt Ritchie has had a calf injury but is expected to be ok.

As for Newcastle’s Swiss international, Bruce said on Friday: ‘Fabian Schar wants to be involved straight away. He might make the squad but we’ve got to be careful because he’s been out for 11 weeks. But, he’s trained well, and come through 45 minutes [for the under-23s earlier this week] unscathed, so he’s there or thereabouts.’

We have left the five out but included Schar and Ritchie.

So this means we have listed 23 Newcastle United players for you to choose from.

So what would be your Newcastle team v Arsenal this Sunday afternoon? Please vote now.
