The teams are out for tonight’s 8pm kick off at Goodison Park tonight and Rafa has made ONE change from the side who beat Arsenal 2-1 last weekend, bringing in Islam Slimani for Dwight Gayle – with the Algerian set to make his first start in black and white.
OUT – Dwight Gayle
IN – Islam Slimani
Here’s the full team we’ll see line-up against Sam Allardyce’s side today:
NUFC XI – (4-2-3-1): Dubravka – Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett – Shelvey, Diame – Ritchie, Perez, Kenedy – Slimani (SUBS –Darlow, Clark, Manquillo, Hayden, Merino, Murphy, Gayle )
After his impressive cameo against Arsenal last weekend, it’s great to see Slimani start in place of Gayle – a striker doing a decent job but one woefully short on confidence.
