If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes today, who would you pick in your starting XI for the visit of West Brom? Does Mathieu Debuchy come back into the side after suspension? Who plays at centre-back now Fabricio Coloccini is fit? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Debuchy Williamson Yanga-Mbiwa Santon

Sissoko Tiote Cabaye Gouffran

Remy Ameobi

The only change I’d make is to restore Debuchy to the side after suspension, with Yanga-Mbiwa moving back into centre-back. That means no place for captain Fabricio Coloccini as neither Williamson or Yanga-Mbiwa deserve to lose their place.

The midfield four stays the same with no place for Hatem Ben Arfa, as Yoan Gouffran is enjoying some fine form on the left wing. Moussa Sissoko is also becoming more effective from the right flank, so he also keeps his place.

Strikers are also the same, as Shola Ameobi continues his run in the team after a number of impressive performances.
