Here is the team Steve Bruce has selected for the match at Goodison Park. It has four changes from the win against Chelsea.

The glaring omission is Allan Saint-Maximin, who has not made the trip, which is very concerning. We hope he has not reinjured himself.
Bruce has rotated the squad somewhat bringing the Longstaff brothers into the midfield. Isaac Hayden has moved to right wing-back, and Christian Atsu comes in for Saint-Maximin.
The back three who played so well on Saturday all keep their place with Florian Lejeune and Fabian Schar on the bench.
It’s great to see two local lads, Liam Gibson and Tom Allan, on the bench for this one.
This is who Carlo Ancelotti has picked for Everton.
?? TEAM NEWS (with a difference)! ??
? Sidibé and Schneiderlin in for Coleman and Davies

Newcastle have a great opportunity to climb into the top half of the table with a win. Let’s hope this team can do the job this evening.
It’s going to be difficult as the team is short on substitute options with four defenders on the bench.
Howay The Lads!
