Hall, Anderson and Barnes start – Confirmed Newcastle team vs Everton

The teams are in ahead of tonight’s 7.30pm kick-off at St James’ Park, where Newcastle United take on an Everton side fighting to stay up.

Here’s the side Eddie Howe has gone with, followed by the subs bench:

NUFC XI: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Burn, Hall, Longstaff, Bruno, Anderson, J Murphy, Isak, Barnes

Subs: Karius, Gillespie, Dummett, Ritchie, Willock, White, Diallo, A Murphy, Parkinson

Four charges from Saturday. Lewis Hall and Harvey Barnes start, with Anthony Gordon suspended and Miguel Almiron and Tino Livramento missing. Kieran Trippier is absent too, seeing Emil Krafth start. Elliot Anderson has been given the nod ahead of Joe Willock.

As expected, Jamaal Lascelles (ACL) misses out along with Sven Botman, Joelinton, Callum Wilson, Nick Pope, Matt Targett and Anthony Gordon, who is suspended after his two bookings on Saturday.

Another huge home game in our push for the European places. Hopefully we can build on that heroic comeback on Saturday, pull clear of Brighton, Wolves and Chelsea and gain on Man Utd (6th) and West Ham (7th), with the latter facing Spurs in tonight’s 8.15pm kick-off.

Howay the lads!

One thought on “Hall, Anderson and Barnes start – Confirmed Newcastle team vs Everton

  1. My observations :-
    Certainly more balanced at the back with players in their right positions.
    Totally wasteful up front although Isak took his goal very well.
    Howe has lost the plot defending Dummet who proved that he is not up to the task, a player with his “experience” should know better, end of. He has also been unavailable for selection most seasons and should have been moved off the books a long time ago.
    Longstaff just gives the ball away so much he can’t continue next season.
    The two bright performances that offer hope were Anderson and Hall.
    The performance was poor overall because we were up against an Everton team who look like a struggling side who offered nothing yet we couldn’t see it out.
