Three Changes – Lascelles, Atsu And Murphy Start At Goodison


Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the tough game at Goodison Park tonight which has 7:45 pm kickoff time and it’s not exactly been a good away ground for us over recent years.

We surprisingly lost 3-0 at home to West Ham on Saturday afternoon and it’s vital that the players try to get back to their winning ways.

It looks like Rafa will play five at the back tonight with Lascelles coming back in Manquillo keeping his place at left-back.

Jamaal Lascelles returns to the side after injury

Murphy and Atsu come into the side at the expense of Perez and Ritchie – who is suspended for this game.

As we’ve mentioned in earlier articles today if Newcastle can keep winning games a takeover could even happen this month, or if not this year then in January.

But we cannot have another slump and slip back into the relegation zone.

There is not a lot of confidence from fans that we can win the game tonight with only one in seven thinking we can get all 3 points.

    Quite frankly I don’t see how Ritchie can be selected on the right ahead of Atsu going forward on this showing
    He isn’t in Atsu’s league from an attacking standpoint

    We’ve been extremely lucky there. Great result, gutsy performance but pathetic ball retention- something we definitely need to work on.

    How we managed to still have 11 players on the pitch at the end is beyond me!

    Good point though, now for the Wolves on Sunday.

    Form guide for the last 6 games shows 3 wins, 2 draws (both away) and 1 loss.

    A point away to Everton. Job done.

    Brilliant defensive display
    Lascelles is a god

    Atsu man of the match

    I suppose we should Be happy with a draw away at Everton, although we had the better chances to win it, they where pretty poor couldn’t break us down.

    Good point, Looked very comfy really, aside from that one bundled corner.

    They mad one other chance of note and that was offside.

    We had the better chances for a winner in the end.

    Atsu a big plus today. Goty better and better as match wore on. All is not lost with him. Should give him confidence and wake Kenedy and Ritchie up. Murphy had his decisive moment too, but he is very flaky.

    Atsu MOTM for me, looked our main threat going forward and maybe should have won the game for us. A hard won point, would have taken that before the game.

    6 more point from the next 4 games should be a minimum target leaving us 19 at halfway.

    Thought Atsu was great today seemed to look match fit again now Rafa give him an extended run in the team now hes never going to get consistent if he keeps getting dropped!

    Worked as hard as Richie does in defence but was actually beating his man and creating chances!

    We do need to work on passing under pressure the amount of times we just hoofed it to Rondon was daft!

    3 at the back works so much better for us allows Fernandez to sort of roam when he spots danger the amount of times he was just there to win the ball was unreal !

    We could’ve snatched it. Although everton totally dominated, it was Pickford who had to pull off a great save.

    Atsu should’ve done better with his second half.

    Battling display against a superior team.

    MOM? I don’t know. Pick any defender.
