Here is the predicted Newcastle team v Everton.

With only two clubs having scored more than Everton but the scousers’ defence looking dodgy (only six including Newcastle have conceded more), it looks like a match that should guarantee goals.

I certainly think United will need to score at least a couple to stand a chance of getting anything from the game and probably at least match last year’s total of three if we are to stand a chance of a much needed win.

So how will Steve McClaren set his team up?

After a bright 20 minutes last Saturday, some fans have suggested Florian Thauvin might get a chance today.

Indeed McClaren has said that he will need all of his players to contribute in this busy period of three games in a week, mentioning Florian Thauvin in particular when he said this.

However, I don’t see the United boss messing too much with his formation that he has favoured, though I do still see changes in his Newcastle team v Everton.

With Papiss Cisse almost certainly out injured, Aleksandar Mitrovic will surely play.

Whilst Ayoze Perez must come in for Siem de Jong as the Dutch midfielder has struggled to impose himself, whilst Perez is too good to leave out.

One other possibility must be Cheick Tiote to come into the middle but maybe West Brom on Monday is more likely for him to be involved.

My predicted Newcastle team v Everton (as in predicting what Steve McClaren will choose…not me):
