Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the game tonight against Everton at Goodison Park and in the game at St. James’ Park earlier this season we were beaten 1-0 in what was a close game.
And the big news is that Islam Slimani, on loan from Leicester City makes his very first start for the club tonight.

This will be a massive opportunity for the 29-year-old Algerian International who has been injured most of the time since he signed on loan on January 31st.
Let’s hope he can play well and lead the line well and maybe score for us tonight – goals are what will make Rafa interested in signing him permanently this summer.
Islam Slimani – makes first start tonight
Newcastle fans seem fairly confident with three in five fans thinking we can win this game to make it five wins in a row.
