Merino had come off the bench at Goodison Park, where Newcastle were beaten 1-0.

The 21-year-old, signed from Borussia Dortmund last year, has been used sparingly by Rafa Benitez in the second half of the season.

Winger Atsu also has a knee problem and will miss tomorrow's game, while defender Gamez has been sidelined for some time with an ankle injury.
