Fans choice of Newcastle team v Southampton on Saturday afternoon
We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Southampton?
We put together a list of the 23 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.
Newcastle looking to bounce back from a shocking start of three defeats in a row.
Ahead of today’s match, Steve Bruce gave an update on the injury and fitness / availability front on Friday.
Both Karl Darlow and Martin Dubravka are out for the foreseeable future, Darlow still recovering from covid and a setback for Dubravka, as the NUFC number one has an infection following surgery for a broken metatarsal.
Whilst Jonjo Shelvey has a calf injury and won’t be available either.
Steve Bruce said Allan Saint-Maximin got a knock on Wednesday night against Burnley but should be ok.
Whilst the NUFC Head Coach said that he would be monitoring both Isaac Hayden and Paul Dummett to see if they were fit enough to be available today, so we have also included them as options below.
Matty Longstaff is now on loan at Aberdeen for the season, so he was one to knock off as a possible.
So this meant we listed 23 Newcastle United players for fans to choose from.
A very interesting choice by the Newcastle fans with percentages of fan votes on all 23 players below (percentages rounded up / down to nearest whole number).
