Team News

  • Darron Gibson returned to action in the cup defeat to Fulham but is likely to be replaced by Gareth Barry, who is set to make his 500th Premier League appearance.
  • Pienaar, Alcaraz and Kone are all nearing full fitness but could continue to miss out while Leon Osman is also a doubt after picking up a groin injury at West Ham.
  • Romelu Lukaku is in competition to start with Nikica Jelavic but played in a weakened side in midweek so he could be rested.
  • Yohan Cabaye should be fit having overcome a minor groin injury but Gutierrez and Ameobi remain doubtful having missed the cup action in midweek.
  • Steven Taylor is still sidelined, leaving the centre-back pairing of Coloccini and Yanga-Mbiwa intact.
  • Cheick Tiote lost his place in the side against Hull but after that defeat he will hope to return in place of Vurnon Anita.


  • Everton are now the only unbeaten Premier League team and they'll want to keep that record having only lost once at home all season last time around.
  • Although they won last time out on the road at Villa, Newcastle have only picked up the three points in 3 away matches since the beginning of last season so there appears to be little hope of them doing so at such a fortress.
  • However, both teams have scored in the last 5 meetings between these two sides so this should be an open and entertaining Monday night fixture.

  • Lol at Mourinho...Lukaku failed at the supercup, yes, but he's a young powerful agressive striker, he can only get better...while Torres and Eto'o are clearly in decline form.

  • Mourinho was definitively stupid with Lukaku..

  • got a feeling Newcastle might take this one 1-0, goal from cisse!

  • Which everton is better? Under martinez? Under moyes? Interesting......��

  • ahaha just thought bout Steven Gerrard

  • Everton win

  • Everton wins 2 - 1

  • I do not think that there will be an easy win Everton are likely to take Newcastle +1
