Newcastle got a shock last gasp winner against Chelsea, and they’re back in action on Tuesday night at Goodison Park.

The Magpies take on Everton for the second time since Carlo Ancelotti took over, aiming for redemption after a disappointing 2-1 defeat during the festive period.

But will Steve Bruce make many changes to his side?

Krafth out

Emil Krafth started against Chelsea on Saturday night, but didn’t complete the game.

The £5 million summer signing really struggled, and was eventually replaced by Sean Longstaff. That forced Isaac Hayden to play at right wing-back, and that’s where he should start against Everton.


Matt Ritchie will come in for the injured Jetro Willems, while the three centre-backs should stay the same after an incredible performance.

Longstaff alongside Shelvey

Krafth dropping out should allow Sean Longstaff to come in. The youngster inadvertently nearly handed Chelsea the opener, but fortunately his blushes were spared.

Longstaff will know the pressure is on with Nabil Bentaleb set to join on loan.

Front three continue

Newcastle’s favoured front three returned on Saturday, and they should continue at Goodison Park.

Joelinton looked a lot better but fed off scraps, so hopefully he gets a bit more service. Bruce also has the option to play him on the left and Allan Saint-Maximin through the middle, which is how Newcastle ended the game against Chelsea.

Predicted lineup to face Everton: Dubravka; Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark; Hayden, S. Longstaff, Shelvey, Ritchie; Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton.
