Everton at Newcastle: Team Lineups and News

Toffees at Toon today.

Chris Brunskill

Everton have a short turnaround as they look to pick up another valuable 3 points against Newcastle. Three points would vault Everton ahead of Tottenham with a game in hand as well.

Martinez has elected to make two switches after Saturday's victory. Gerard Deulofeu gets the start over Kevin Mirallas, and Leon Osman will captain the side after replacing McGeady on the left. It is an interesting choice by Roberto Martinez, and undoubtedly one borne of trying to give his two fit wingers a bit of rest. The combination of Deulofeu and Coleman on the right should be exciting. Before The Spaniard's injury in December he was pairing well with the Irish fullback.
