If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tomorrow, who would be in your starting XI to take on Swansea? Does Papiss Cisse start up front? Who plays in midfield? To get involved, leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I think:


Janmaat – Williamson – Coloccini – Haidara

Obertan – Sissoko – Tiote – Cabella

Ayoze Perez – Cisse

I’d switch the formation to give Newcastle the maximum chance of scoring. Two strikers would increase the attacking threat from the Geordies and Perez’s pace could be a weapon against Swansea’s defence.

Gabriel Obertan impressed when he came off the bench against Stoke on Monday so he would start on the right, with Moussa Sissoko in his strongest position in the centre of midfield.

Remy Cabella isn’t a left midfielder but I’d rather have him on the wing than Yoan Gouffran, who hasn’t played well since last year.

Cisse would return up front, while Haidara would be ahead of Dummett at left-back.

That’s what I think, do you agree? Leave a comment below and get involved!
