On September 17, 1997, Newcastle United secured a historic Champions League group stage win over Barcelona at St James’ Park. 

Newcastle’s No.11 netted a hat-trick inside the opening 50 minutes before Luis Enrique and Luis Figo scored late on but the home side held on for the win. 

The Magpies weren’t able to get out of the group stage, but we’re asking you to name the Xl that Kenny Dalglish selected for that game against Barcelona.
