If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes come tomorrow evening, who would you pick to start for Newcastle against Spurs? Does Anita come straight into the starting line-up? Who plays up front? Do we stick with the same formation that served us well last campaign? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Krul
Simpson Coloccini S. Taylor Santon

Cabaye Tiote Gutierrez

Ben Arfa Cisse Ba

As you can see I’d stick with the same team and formation that we played last season. The front three are untouchable when they’re on form and hopefully they can hit the ground running this time round.

I’d play Santon at left-back tomorrow, with Anita starting from the bench and being introduced in the second half. To start him against the likes of Gareth Bale and Rafael Van Der Vaart with no previous Premier League experience could potentially be costly.

What do you think? Whether you agree or disagree, leave a comment below and have your say!

    Ben Arfa and Cabaye appear to be unfit so I'd give these a go. I think this team could provide more class than we've seen at newcastle for many years. Jonas, Anita and Marveaux could have all sorts of good possibilities down the left and Santon would provide some real quality alongside Taylor and a good attacking option on the right.

    Krul
    Santon, S. Taylor, Colo, Anita
    Tiote, Bigirama, Jonas,
    Cisse, Ba, Marveaux

    I would go with
    Krul
    Simpson Colocini Taylor Santon
    Gutierrez Tiote Cabaye Marveaux
    Ba Cisse

    This is depending on tiote and cabaye being fit, if either aren't available i would throw anita straight in it also doesn't look like ben arfa is fit or available so wouldn't consider him
