At today’s press conference ahead of Arsenal, John Carver has confirmed that neither Rolando Aarons or Massadio Haidara will be available to return.

With apparently the only positive news that Siem de Jong began light training today and will be back sometime in the future.

The Newcastle Head Coach says that he has only 15 senior players available;

“I only have 13 fit senior players, plus two goalkeepers, for Saturday’s game.”

This is presumably:

Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Ryan Taylor, Sissoko, Colback, Ameobi, Obertan, Riviere, Gouffran, Elliot, Jonas, Perez, Cabella and Anita.

The above are the senior players that were available at Everton, minus Colocconi.

Youngsters Lubomir Satka and Adam Armstrong made up the 18 that were named at Goodison Park.
