If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tomorrow afternoon, who would you pick to start against Liverpool? Does Hatem Ben Arfa start? Who plays on the wing? Does Cheick Tiote return after injury? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Debuchy S.Taylor Yanga-Mbiwa Haidara

Cabaye Tiote

Ben Arfa Sissoko Gouffran


Newcastle need maximum creativity if they are to score against Liverpool, so Ben Arfa starting is a must for me. Another cameo appearance may not happen until Newcastle are chasing the game and by that time against a side as strong as Liverpool, it could be far too late.

I’d bring Tiote back into the side to track Philippe Coutinho and other runners from midfield, however Sissoko playing there and Ben Arfa moving into a number 10 role could also be an option, with Gutierrez coming in on the wing.

Rest of the side picks itself, with Haidara getting the nod over everyone at left-back.
