This Sunday could well be Chancel Mbemba’s last chance to say goodbye to the Toon faithful. We can only speculate over the powerful defender’s future, but he’s barely featured in Rafa Benitez’s plans this season and hasn’t made a first-team appearance for Newcastle since the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea in January.
Newcastle face the Blues once again this weekend, this time hosting them at St. James’ Park on the final day of the Premier League season, so we recently asked Magpies supporters whether the 38-cap Congo international should be given a runout against the former Premier League champions.
And our poll has revealed that Newcastle fans are split almost right down the middle. Whereas 52% want Mbemba to get the nod and make potentially his last ever start for the Tynesiders, 48% would prefer Benitez to leave him out of the starting XI.
So, Newcastle fans, how would you set up Benitez’s side on Sunday? Let us know by voting below…
