Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle come into this match needing a positive result and performance to bounce back with, following the second half collapse and 4-2 defeat to West Ham in the opening game.

Ahead of this afternoon’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.

Elliot Anderson is still on his way back from a hip problem, whilst Steve Bruce says Matty Longstaff is set to go out on loan to get matches and get fully fit.

Whilst Jonjo Shelvey now has a new calf injury, with Paul Dummett also out as he recovers from injury still.

So this means we have listed 21 Newcastle United players for you to choose from.

So what would be your Newcastle team v Aston Villa this Saturday afternoon? Please vote now.
