Unsurprisingly, Achraf Lazaar was voted in as your preferred left back and, as a result, we have now completed the defensive line. Just to recap, your preferred defensive line consists of Tim Krul, Jesus Gamez, Chancel Mbemba and Jamaal Lascelles. However, with Krul having gone out on loan to Ajax, his position will be given to Rob Elliot (who came second).

Now, it is time to move on to the midfield and we are going to start with your preferred central-midfielders. Newcastle’s options in this position are: Jack Colback, Jonjo Shelvey, Mohamed Diame, Christian Atsu, Isaac Hayden and Cheick Tiote.

In order to find out who your preferred central-midfielders are, we have set up a duel which is in the style of winner stays on. Since Newcastle play a 4-2-3-1 formation with two defensive central-midfielders and one attacking central-midfielder, the top 3 with the highest percentage of votes, will be declared as your preferred choices.
