Everton will be missing the likes of Tim Cahill and Marouane Fellaini, although doubts over the fitness of Louis Saha remain as yet unconfirmed. The former Toon striker may play, but just how fit is he? That is, and has been, his problem for a number of years now. Despite that though, David Moyes will have his side riled up and ready to make amends for their disappointing midweek FA Cup exit to the hand of Championship outfit Reading.
The match also gives Newcastle the chance to end the two-and-a-half year hoodoo in which they have failed to win a Saturday, 3pm kick-off. It has to end some time, surely?

With regard to streaming (I think Niall Quinn just shuddered then) the match, it’s been hit and miss all season when it comes to quality. However, a quick look at the MyP2P site does at least fill me with a slight bit of hope. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll find one that will be good for 90 minutes. I won’t hold my breath though, but if you do manage to stumble across a decent stream then please feel free to leave a link to it in the comments section below.
That’s just about it. All that’s left for me to say is that I hope we all end up enjoying the game!
