Everton Team News
- Out: Andros Townsend, Séamus Coleman, Rúben Vinagre, Dele Alli, Mason Holgate (red card)
- Doubt: Amadou Onana
One of the most storied clubs in English football history, Everton is in real danger of dropping down into the Championship for the first time in seventy years as they come into the weekend sitting in eighteenth, but thankfully for boss Sean Dyche, they are level on points with Leicester City in 17th and just one point adrift of 16th-place Leeds United.
A clash against Champions League-motivated Newcastle United presents a daunting task in the midweek program after Eddie Howe’s Magpies smashed Tottenham 6-1 at the weekend at St. James’ Park, with the Toffees needing to be close to perfect if they are to take anything off the 3rd-place outfit.
Dyche will be without Andros Townsend, Séamus Coleman, Rúben Vinagre, and the returned Dele Alli all due to injury. Mason Holgate is suspended after receiving his marching orders against Crystal Palace and will also miss out on proceedings. Abdoulaye Doucouré should slot into the team after serving his own suspension, while midfielder Amadou Onana faces a late assessment to gauge his possible availability.
