Newcastle United will take on Everton as they travel to Goodison Park on Thursday night to grab all three points from this contest. The Magpies come into the match on the back of an emphatic 6-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, so they will be looking to produce a similar result in this midweek encounter.
Eddie Howe will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to keep the changes to a minimum. Jamaal Lascelles should replace Fabian Schar in the backline, while Alexander Isak leads the charge against the Toffees.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted XI Vs Everton
Nick Pope will continue to function in goal for the Magpies, looking to earn a clean sheet. Sven Botman will form a defensive partnership with Jamaal Lascelles at the heart of Newcastle’s backline as they focus on stopping the opposition attackers from causing too many problems during the game.
Kieran Trippier will operate as the right-back, while Dan Burn hopes to perform on the other side as the left-back. Both the Newcastle full-backs will be responsible for containing the opposition wingers and stopping them from creating chances from the wide areas.
Matt Targett will offer cover for the defensive positions as he takes a spot on the bench.
Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes and Joe Willock will continue to operate in the central areas as they try to dominate possession at the centre of the park and engineer some decent chances in the final third.
Joelinton will remain the left-sided wide player, while Jacob Murphy hopes to be productive on the right flank. Both of them would have to find a way to create more opportunities in front of the goal if the Magpies are to win this contest.
Alexander Isak will lead the Tyneside club’s charge on the field’s attacking end. The Swedish striker will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net and getting his name on the scoresheet again.
Miguel Almiron will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the game’s final quarter if Newcastle needs a goal by then.
