Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon?

We have put together a list of the 25 players who could potentially be selected for this game from the first team squad.

Eddie Howe and his Newcastle side looking to get an ideal start to the season against a promoted team who came up via the play-offs.

Only 76 days since that final game of the 2021/22 Premier League season, a 2-1 win at Burnley confirming Newcastle United as the team with the third best second half of the season from in the top tier.

That form particularly impressive at St James’ Park, where Eddie Howe’s team won seven of their final eight Premier League games at home.

Newcastle United published the squad numbers on Friday ahead of this opening match, with 30 in total named and numbered.

There only appears to be four of those 30 definitely ruled out through injury / fitness issues, with Watts, Fernandez, Lewis, Shelvey and Manquillo all missing, leaving the 25 possibles listed below.

So what would be your Newcastle team v Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon? Please vote now.
