3 weeks ago

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

We put together a list of the 21 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle looking to improve on that 4-2 home defeat to West Ham.

Ahead of Saturday’s match, Steve Bruce confirmed that Karl Darlow and Martin Dubravka aren’t close to a comeback yet.

Bruce also stating that Paul Dummett still wasn’t fully fit and that Jonjo Shelvey had picked up a new calf injury.

The Head Coach also making clear that Matty Longstaff and Elliot Anderson won’t be involved today.
