Fans choice of Newcastle team v Burnley on Wednesday night
We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Burnley?
We put together a list of the 22 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.
Newcastle looking to improve on a start to the season that has seen defeats in the Premier League to both West Ham and Aston Villa.
Ahead of Wednesday night’s match, Steve Bruce confirmed that Karl Darlow and Martin Dubravka aren’t close to a comeback yet, indeed Dubravka isn’t likely to be back until two months time at the earliest.
Bruce also stating that Paul Dummett still wasn’t fully fit and that Jonjo Shelvey is facing at least a month out with a calf injury.
Isaac Hayden is another ruled out tonight, though Bruce expressed some hope that he might be available again for Southampton on Saturday.
So that means we listed 22 Newcastle United players for fans to choose from.
