Here’s how YOU reacted to the starting XI at St James’s Park.

@Clarence_Acuna1 – “I'm all for giving people a chance but Joelinton needs dropping. I'd of taken him out of the 18 today and started with Gayle or Muto with the other on the bench.

@MichaelGallon – “Dropping Manquillo. Unbelievable - madness.”

@Clinton_Forde – “Belated 'Christmas' Carroll goal incoming…”

@nufcsanjay – “Strong XI that, good to have Carroll and Joelinton alongside each other again. Shelvey and Hayden duo will be key as well. Resting Manquillo probably the sensible option.”

@bodas73 – “Manquillo very unlucky to be dropped today IMO.”

@NUFCDefenceFC – “BIG ANDY But why no Manquillo?”

@_arrongallagher – “How come Gayle keeps getting a place on bench or few mins here and there? Think it’s time to give muto a chance.”
