If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tomorrow afternoon, who would be in your team to take on West Brom at the Hawthorns? Who plays up front? Does Mehdi Abeid remain in midfield? Who replaces Gabriel Obertan? Get involved and leave a comment below!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Janmaat – S.Taylor – Coloccini – Dummett

Sissoko – Abeid – Colback

Cabella – Perez – Ameobi

I’d stick with the 4-3-3 formation that worked well against Liverpool, with Remy Cabella replacing the injured Obertan and Ameobi keeping his place on the left as Rolando Aarons is also missing.

The rest of the team stays the same as the one that beat Liverpool, with Abeid anchoring the midfield and tracking the run of any West Brom attacking midfielder.

If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.
