Allan Saint-Maximin left OUT of Newcastle United squad
Steve Bruce’s side take on Everton tonight in a Premier League game (7.30pm kick-off). And Saint-Maximin – who played 96 minutes on his comeback from a hamstring injury in the club’s 1-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend – is not involved.
Bruce – who is without a number of players, notably Andy Carroll – has made four changes and recalled Sean and Matty Longstaff to his starting XI along with Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu. Newcastle are 12th in the division and seven points above the relegation zone.
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Dubravka, Hayden, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, S Longstaff, M Longstaff, Atsu, Almiron, Joelinton. Subs: Darlow, Schar, Shelvey, Krafth, Lejeune, Gibson, Allan.
EVERTON: Pickford, Holgate, Delph, Calvert-Lewin, Walcott, Digne, Mina, Schneiderlin, Sidibe, Bernard, Kean. Subs: Lossl, Baines, Keane, Coleman, Davies, Niasse, Gordon.
