Newcastle United vs Everton

Lee Ryder

Jamaal Lascelles has to return again in towards Everton to raise his team-mates and get some organisation again into the ranks. Jonjo Shelvey would nonetheless be on the bench for me, whereas I wouldn’t budge on Joselu and Dwight Gayle who now have six objectives between them.
My group (Four-Four-2): Darlow; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Manquillo; Ritchie, Hayden, Merino, Atsu; Joselu, Gayle

Chris Waugh

Primarily it is a Four-Four-2 formation in assault, however tinkered barely in order that Joselu can sit a bit deeper and in order that Newcastle can management the midfield space higher than they did on Saturday. Gayle and Joselu’s understanding is enhancing with each recreation, so I consider each must play. Christian Atsu, in the meantime, ought to return to the facet as a result of the Magpies have missed his means to beat a person. Though it's harsh on Jacob Murphy, I feel he'll make an amazing second-half affect substitute now his confidence has returned. As for Jonjo Shelvey, his means to choose a move could show essential on this match, although he must do defensive work too if he's to play alongside Mikel Merino. In defence, Florian Lejeune ought to be taking out of the firing line for a match, permitting Jamaal Lascelles and his management expertise to return.
My group (Four-2-Three-1): Darlow; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Manquillo; Merino, Shelvey; Ritchie, Joselu, Atsu; Gayle

OK: I noticed sufficient from the Four-Four-2 on Saturday to counsel they may make it work with totally different personnel. And whereas I’ve been pretty constant in choosing Mitrovic for this facet, I assumed the entrance two on Saturday was fairly good so that they have to remain in. Elsewhere leggy Mikel Merino would get replaced by Shelvey and the 2 absentees return to the beginning XI. It’s a group that may beat Everton.
My group (Four-Four-2): Elliot; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Mbemba; Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu; Joselu, Gayle

Andrew Musgrove

I’ll begin by saying, if Rafa Benitez chooses this group - I’ll run down Northumberland in a Christmas Onesie. Nonetheless, I might make a press release by beginning Freddie Woodman. Each Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow have seemed removed from convincing and it’s about time, for my part, to present Woodman a shout.
Elsewhere, Clark and Lejeune have seemed very poor. Chancel Mbemba however for the one mistake at Chelsea continues to a job when referred to as upon whereas Jamaal Lascelles is simply wanted again as quickly as potential. If he’s match, begin him!
At left-back, I’d usher in Gamez to fill within the area till Paul Dummett is 100%. In midfield - one thing is missing and I’d spice it up by selecting Henri Saivet. Rafa Benitez afforded him a chance again into the primary group - so use him and let Mikel Merino roam. Matt Ritchie wants a relaxation after a torrid few weeks and I’d like to see each pace retailers in Aarons and Murphy on the wings.
Up high, I’d decide Aleksandar Mitrovic to accomplice Dwight Gayle.
My group (Four-Four-2): Woodman; Yedlin, Mbemba, Lascelles, Gamez; Aarons, Saivet, Merino, Murphy; Mitrovic, Gayle

Sean McCormick

The return of Jamaal Lascelles is desperately wanted and after Benitez confirmed he was slot in yesterday’s press convention, his identify ought to be one of many first on the team-sheet.
His organisation on the again might be key, and revisiting the partnership between him and Clark ought to result in constructive reward.
I’m nonetheless not satisfied by Javi Manquillo, so I’d change him with Chancel Mbemba at left-back.
I’d carry Jonjo Shelvey again into midfield to accomplice Mikel Merino and I might drop Matt Ritchie for Christian Atsu.
Ritchie has been out of kinds not too long ago and the Ghanaian seemed energetic on Saturday off the bench.
As did Ayoze Perez, who I might usher in for Joselu. Dwight Gayle has been in excellent kind in entrance of purpose, and he would stay up entrance, for me.
My group (Four-2-Three-1): Darlow; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Mbemba; Shelvey, Merino; Murphy, Perez, Atsu; Gayle
