Fans choice of Newcastle team v Watford

3 weeks ago

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

We put together a list of the 18 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle looking to bounce back from a shocking start of two draws and four defeats in their opening six games.

Ahead of this afternoon’s match, Steve Bruce gave an update on the injury and fitness / availability front on Friday.

Martin Dubravka is still out, following surgery for a broken metatarsal.

The same with Callum Wilson and his thigh problem, whilst Jonjo Shelvey’s calf injury means he still won’t be available either.

Freddie Woodman and Paul Dummett remain out injured, whilst the NUFC Head Coach brought us news that both Jamaal Lascelles and Joe Willock had been added to the injured list.

So this meant we listed 18 Newcastle United players for fans to choose from.

A very interesting choice by the Newcastle fans with percentages of fan votes on all 18 players below (percentages rounded up / down to nearest whole number).
