If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tomorrow – at least when he picks the Newcastle team to face Fulham – who would you pick in your starting line-up to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage? Who fills in at right-back in place of Mathieu Debuchy? Who plays in Loic Remy’s place? We want to hear from you. Leave a comment below and have your say!

 

Here’s what I’ve come up with:

 

Krul

Yanga-Mbiwa – Williamson – Coloccini – Dummett

Sissoko – Anita – Tiote – Haidara

de Jong – Gouffran

 

I’d stick with a 4-4-2 formation like the one that was used in the win over Hull last week, with the only changes coming where they are enforced.

The back four is boosted by the return of Fabricio Coloccini, but the injury to Debuchy means Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa can play at right-back like he has been when Debuchy has been injured or suspended this season.

Remy will be a big loss up front for Newcastle, so I’d replace him by giving Yoan Gouffran a chance in a central role, with Massadio Haidara coming in on the left of midfield.

The French full-back has not played there for Newcastle before, but his attacking instincts may suit him well. The added defensive skill he has will also allow Dummett to get forward more from left-back and give us a double threat down the wing.

The rest of the team basically picks itself and is in good form, having won their last two matches.
