If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tonight, who would you pick for the game against Metalist at St James’ Park? How many changes do we make? Who fills in at right-back? Does Cisse continue up front? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Simpson S. Taylor Yanga-Mbiwa Santon

Tiote Cabaye

Gutierrez Sissoko Marveaux


I’d go with a similar team to the one that played against Tottenham at the weekend, with only two enforced changes. Gouffran is injured and ineligible, so Marveaux comes in for him. Danny Simpson replaces Debuchy at right-back as the Frenchman is also unregistered.

Vurnon Anita may start at either right-back or holding midfield, but Alan Pardew’s words in midweek seem to indicate that there will not be many changes to the side that has done so well in recent weeks.

What do you think? Leave a comment below and have your say!
