If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes when Southampton come to town tomorrow, who would you pick in your starting XI to take on the Saints? Who replaces the suspended Yohan Cabaye? Who partners Loic Remy up front? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Debuchy Williamson Coloccini Santon

Sissoko Anita Tiote Gouffran

Sh.Ameobi Remy

I’d make minimal changes to the side that beat Man United last time out. The only change in personnel I’d make is Shola Ameobi coming in for Cabaye, with Vurnon Anita taking the Frenchman’s place in centre midfield.

Ameobi has been rested for a week now, so should be back at full strength tomorrow.

Another option could be to restore Hatem Ben Arfa on the right and move Moussa Sissoko into the centre but with the form of Anita, I’d go with Ameobi instead.
