Newcastle United Team News
- Out: Emil Krafth, Ryan Fraser
- Doubt: Allan Saint-Maximin
Champions League-motivated Newcastle United solidified their grip on their position in the top four yesterday with a consummate 4-1 at Everton. Eddie Howe’s Magpies now sit two points clear of Manchester United despite the Red Devils owning a match in hand, while fifth-sitting Tottenham is now eight points adrift of the club with an additional match played.
All signs point to Tyneside hosting Champions League nights once again for the first time in years in 2023-24, with a timely weekend clash in front of home support against relegation-candidates Southampton traveling north on Sunday.
Eddie Howe can bank on keeping faith in the same players once again here with only Emil Krafth and Ryan Fraser remaining the only two players guaranteed to be unavailable for selection. French winger Allan Saint-Maximin did not make the matchday squad against the Toffees yesterday and remains a doubt for the weekend.
