TEAM NEWS: Benitez makes ONE big change to the NUFC team to play Everton tonight

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.
