If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes this afternoon when Newcastle take on Wigan, who would you pick for the game against the Latics? Who replaces Yohan Cabaye in midfield? Who supports Papiss Cisse up front with Hatem Ben Arfa sidelined? Does Adam Campbell get a chance in the first team? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Debuchy Yanga-Mbiwa S.Taylor Santon

Tiote Anita

Marveaux Sissoko Gouffran


I’d restore the ineligible Europa League players to the first team, with Gouffran supporting Cisse up front as he has been in recent Premier League games.

Sylvain Marveaux was excellent on Thursday night against Anzhi and deserves to start, in a bid to replace the creativity lost by Hatem Ben Arfa’s absence.

Vurnon Anita would replace Cabaye in my team, with Sissoko staying in an advanced position in midfield. Another equally likely option could be Sissoko playing deeper, with Marveaux playing centrally and Jonas Gutierrez replacing Anita in midfield.
