A new look Newcastle United are looking to start their post January transfer window with a win against Everton at St James’s Park tonight (7:45pm kick-off).
The Magpies have secured five signings in the January window with Kieran Trippier joining from Atletico Madrid for £12million, Chris Wood arriving from Burnley for £25million, Bruno Guimaraes signing from Lyon for £33.3million, Matt Target making a temporary loan switch from Aston Villa and Dan Burn returning to the North East from Brighton & Hove Albion for £13million.
After beating Leeds United 1-0 last time out in the Premier League over a fortnight ago, Eddie Howe’s side will be looking to make it back to back wins for the first time this season as they host Everton.
Joelinton (groin) is expected to be back in contention for the match. Out of Newcastle’s new recruits, Dan Burn (toe) is the only doubt for the match while Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson and Federico Fernandez remain sidelined.
