Starting lineups -

Everton: Howard, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines, Hibbert, Neville, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Gibson, Jelavic.

Newcastle: Krul, Coloccini, Santon, Williamson, Perch, Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Cabaye, Tiote, Cisse, Ba.

Lots at stake, more so for Newcastle than Everton. The Toons need a win, and points dropped by Arsenal and Tottenham to take the third and final Champions' League spot. The Toffees on the other hand are trying to finish ahead of crosstown rivals Liverpool and a win will seal 7th place ahead of the Reds.

It is a dramatic day in the Premiership, with other storylines too - Manchester City need to match or better Manchester United to win the Premier League, while Bolton will be hoping for a win and a Queens Park Rangers loss to avoid relegation. Blackburn and Wolverhampton have already been relegated.
