4-2-3-1: Benitez must field this Newcastle XI to see off Huddersfield on Sunday

The Newcastle United fans down in the Transfer Tavern refuse to give their side a hard time, despite losing to 2-0 to Tottenham on Sunday.

The Toon Army have rather singled at one player, Jonjo Shelvey, whose petulance saw him red carded just a few minutes into the second half.

The England international was caught treading on Dele Alli directly in front of referee Andre Mariner who had no choice but to send him off.

It’s not the first time Shelvey’s indiscretions have got him in trouble and now Rafa Benitez has a huge decision to make over who should replace him at the heart of the Newcastle midfield.

Benitez’s side were going fairly strongly up until then, but and Benitez cannot afford for many more game defining moments like that this season.

We think the Spaniard needs to field this XI to see off Huddersfield on Sunday…
