Possible Starting 11

Pope is the starting goalkeeper for Newcastle. At the back experienced fullback, Trippier starts at RB, but the Toon has a very talented backup right back in Livramento. The CB spots are usually shared between Schar, Botman and Lascelles. Both Hall and Dan Burn can start at LB.

Newcastle also has lots of options in midfield. In Tonali’s absence, Bruno Guimaraes is their star midfielder, however Joelinton, Joe Willock and Sean Longstaff are all capable and great midfielders. Up top Howe also has lots of options. Almiron, Gordon and Isak are the standard starters, however Harvey Barnes, Callum Wilson or Jacob Murphy will all player a key role.
