Newcastle will be doing all that they can to continue their charge towards the top of the Premier League table when they take on fellow high-flyers Fulham on Sunday.
Eddie Howe’s side currently sit third in the table and know that they can gain on Manchester City or pull away from Manchester United with a win against Fulham as the Manchester sides gear up to face each other.
He’s a look at the starting XI that How could pick….
GK: Nick Pope – He has become a rock at the back for Newcastle this season.
RB: Kieran Trippier – With every game that passes, Trippier’s decision to sign with Newcastle looks smarter and smarter. His creativity from the wide areas is a huge part of Newcastle’s game now.
CB: Fabian Schar – The Swiss defender is a huge part of why Newcastle have got the best defence in the Premier League so far this season, conceding just 11 goals so far.
CB: Sven Botman – May have had a slow start to his time at Newcastle but he is looking like a very smart signing now and is growing in influence.
LB: Dan Burn – He may not look like your orthodox left-back but Burn is looking extremely confident and provides crucial height in both boxes.
CM: Sean Longstaff – His influence has begun to grow in this Newcastle midfield after a patch of bad form last season. He is a key performer for the Magpies now.
CM: Bruno Guimaraes – The Brazilian midfielder is the man that makes it all tick for Howe. Almost every good attacking move has been going through the former Lyon man this season.
CM: Joe Willock – Yet another player that has been finding a new level in recent weeks and is only growing in influence.
RW: Miguel Almiron – He is likely Newcastle’s player of the season so far and a candidate to be the Premier League player of the season. He will fancy his chances at home against Fulham.
ST: Callum Wilson – It is not easy to be chosen as Newcastle striker right now with Alexander Isak returning from injury and Chris Wood in the frame, but Wilson has done enough to make the spot his for now.
LW: Joelinton – He is in the bad books right now after being charged with drink driving, but he is in superb form on the pitch and will likely be key against Fulham.
