Which 11 players would you pick in the Newcastle team v Everton this afternoon?
We have put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this game.
Rafa Benitez confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Paul Dummett was still no fit enough to be in the squad.
The NUFC boss also stating that Karl Darlow and Isaac Hayden were ruled out.
In addition, whilst Lejeune and Sterry are back training, neither are in consideration at the moment as they work their way back to full fitness after long-term injury.
As a further blow, Rafa is missing Matt Ritchie, the winger suspended after picking up five bookings already this season.
Rafa Benitez speaking at his pre-Everton press conference:
“Dummett is still not ready – getting better, but not ready.
(Isaac) Hayden also is not available, like (Karl) Darlow – they had the problem the last week.
“The other players are more or less – (Florian) Lejeune is training, (Jamie) Sterry is training.
“So everybody is training but we have two or three players who are not available and we have to make a decision later on about a couple of them.”
