Newcastle United are back in Premier League action on Tuesday night as they take on Everton at St James' Park - Kick-off is 7:30pm live on TNT Sport.

After partaking in one of the craziest games of football in recent memory, Newcastle will have very little time to recover before they are back in action again on Tuesday night.

The Magpies lost three more players to injury in that game against West Ham as well as losing Anthony Gordon to a suspension.

We have no updates on the extent of Miguel Almiron or Tino Livramento's injuries but we don't expect either to be involved on Tuesday, while we know Jamaal Lascelles will not be seen again this year. We're hoping that Kieran Trippier, who missed out on Saturday, will be back in action on Tuesday night.

We have gone with a bit of fantasy football in the midfield

We've added our own spin on this one


Martin Dubravka - We're getting to the point now where we can't wait to be able to put Nick Pope's name here again. M-Dubz plays like he has one of those collars on from the movie The Running Man and if he comes off his line his head explodes.


Kieran Trippier - Please, please let him be available again. If not, then we still have Emil Krafth, but we've got all extremities crossed for Tripps being back.

Fabian Schar - Saturday was far from his best performance so he'll have to pick himself up and give his head a shake before Tuesday.

Dan Burn - The big man will step infield to partner Schar as he did for most of the game on Saturday. Potentially wearing the captain's armband if Tripps doesn't pass fit.

Lewis Hall - Hall has massively impressed in his last two performances and now is the time to give him a proper shot.



Joe Willock - This is where we've taken some liberties. Sean Longstaff has been horrid lately and Elliot Anderson was outstanding on Saturday so we feel it's time for a switch-up. Willock on the right side so Anderson can play on the left side.

Bruno Guimaraes - He never stopped on Saturday despite receiving regular kickings from his mate Lucas Paqueta

Elliot Anderson - He was a big part of Newcastle's comeback on Saturday and for us, he's earned a place in the starting lineup ahead of Sean Longstaff. Although we're not confident that Eddie Howe will have the stones to do it.


Jacob Murphy - Murph had a decent game on Saturday, but with Miggy injured, he's almost an automatic pick for Tuesday.

Alexander Isak - Two goals from the spot on Saturday will have done his confidence no harm at all. He was also excellent in open play.

Harvey Barnes - With Gordon suspended it will fall to Barnes to be the creator, but given his two-goal cameo on Saturday we have no issue at all with that.

We look surprisingly strong all things considered

We panicked when all of our players started dropping like flies on Saturday wondering if we'd have enough players left to put out a team on Tuesday night, but looking at that line-up, and given the fact that there's still scope for it to be different, we're not as worried anymore.

Our bench will be full of kids, for sure, but that starting XI should have more than enough to see off the challenge of Everton.

It's just a shame that Anthony Gordon won't be a part of it.
