John Carver has just announced the Newcastle team for this afternoon’s Premier League game at Everton and there’s no Ayoze Perez or Remy Cabella in the starting line-up.
Everton (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, Antolin Alcaraz, Phil Jagielka (c), Leighton Baines; Darron Gibson, James McCarthy; Aaron Lennon, Leon Osman, Arouna Kone; Romelu Lukaku
Substitutes: Joel Robles, Luke Garbutt, John Stones, Muhamed Besic, Ross Barkley, Christian Atsu, Steven Naismith
Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Ryan Taylor; Moussa Sissoko, Jack Colback; Gabriel Obertan, Yoan Gouffran, Sammy Ameobi; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Lubomir Satka, Vurnon Anita, Jonas Gutierrez, Remy Cabella, Ayoze Perez, Adam Armstrong
Referee: Martin Atkinson (Yorkshire)
Newcastle will play in a 4-2-3-1 formation as expected and Colback and Sissoko will be the two holding central midfielders.
But Manu Riviere gets the start in preference to 21 year-old Perez, although we should see the youngster in the second half.
It looks like it’s Yoan Gouffran playing directly behind Riviere in the number 10 role today and Jonas is again on the bench and we could see the Argentine at some point in the game.
Almost one in two fans think we will lose this game.
It would be good for John Carver to get his 3rd win in 11 attempts today.
Howay The Lads!!
