Confirmed Newcastle team v Everton – 4 changes as Atsu, Ritchie and Longstaff(x2) all start
The Newcastle team v Everton has just been confirmed.
Newcastle kicking off their game at 7.30pm.
NUFC looking to build on Saturday’s late win over Chelsea.
Monday brought a couple of bits of really bad news.
Jetro Willems definitely missing the rest of this season due to the freak ACL injury he picked up early in that win over Chelsea.
Similarly, Paul Dummett has also been likely ruled out for the season, this followed another injury picked up with nobody at fault, this time in the match at Wolves 10 days ago.
The confirmed Newcastle team v Everton:
Dubravka, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Hayden, S.Longstaff, M.Longstaff, Atsu, Almiron, Joelinton
There are four changes:
Out: Willems, Saint-Maximin, Shelvey, Krafth
In: Ritchie, Sean Longstaff, Matty Longstaff, Atsu
Allan Saint-Maximin out of the squad altogether, although it is reported this is simply resting him, not due to injury.
However, both Joelinton and Miguel Almiron starting once again, just like Saturday there are few other options on the bench going forward. Only young forward Tom Allan, whilst Under 23s defender Liam Gibson also gets place amongst the subs.
Darlow, Schar, Shelvey, Krafth, Lejeune, Gibson, Allan
