Here is the predicted Newcastle team v Everton.
Only 39 days after Everton grabbed a last second winner at St James Park, the two teams meet at Goodison Park.
Jonjo Shelvey has already made an instant impression, playing a key role in the win over West Ham on his debut. Whilst at Watford he dipped below that level but was still one of United’s better players in the defeat.
Shelvey is surely one of the first names on McClaren’s team sheet for next Wednesday night and another looks sure to be Andros Townsend.
The United Head Coach says that the winger is fit and after a week’s training with his new team-mates, he will go straight into the team.
However, Henri Saivet is still finding his feet and I fancy that if fit after his knock, Jack Colback will be back in the team alongside Shelvey in the middle.
As for elsewhere, I see Ayoze Perez as the one to lose out in the switch around, with Townsend playing left wing and Wijnaldum in the middle behind Mitrovic.
The other big decision likely to be at left-back, though if Dummett is fit (and no new signing…) then the Geordie Welsh international will be McClaren’s choice to come back in.
