Newcastle have a chance to enact some revenge on Everton on Tuesday at Goodison Park. The Toffees defeated Newcastle 2-1 at St James Park to close out 2019 in a bit of a somber way.
However, the squad was struggling with injuries and fatigue at the time, having just been well beaten at Old Trafford two days before.
While the injury situation is still critical with basically only Emil Krafth and Matt Ritchie available at wing-backs, some vital players are back in Jamaal Lascelles, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Ciaran Clark.
After two wins on the bounce, including the FA Cup, the lads will be confident they can get something out of this away trip.
Newcastle are now level on points with Everton after the unexpected Chelsea result from Saturday. However, Everton sit one place above in eleventh with their superior goal difference.
Bruce will likely rotate the squad slightly though he doesn’t have too many options in some areas. In addition to wing-back, there’s only one striker fit in Joelinton at the moment.
Though Bruce is back to having plenty of fit center-halves with Fabian Schar and Florian Lejeune available for rotation.
Hopefully, the head coach will provide some positive updates on a few of our injured players at his press conference on Monday. We hope to hear that at least Andy Carroll and DeAndre Yedlin will be ready to play.
