Newcastle United are at Goodison Park tonight for the Premier League meeting with Everton which is live on Amazon Prime Video at 7:30pm.

Eddie Howe once again had a very limited squad to choose from and as because of that we absolutely nailed it with our lineup prediction.

Due to Nick Pope's shoulder injury, Martin Dubravka coming in between the sticks is the only change from the last three matches.

Newcastle make just the one change due to injury

Nailed it again

That means Anthony Gordon does make the team in his return to Goodison Park tonight as expected, now it just remains to be seen what kind of reception he receives.

Sean Dyche has made a couple of interesting choices tonight with Ashley Young seemingly playing in midfield in front of Seamus Coleman, likely in a ploy to nullify Gordon - although we can't see how that's going to work given the clear difference in pace between Gordon and the two Evertonians.

Outpacing the defence isn't going to be an issue for Gordon

As my Evertonian mate just put in our group whatsapp - "22 year old Anthony Gordon running at a Everton right side that has a combined age of 73". Oh well, unlucky.

There may still be elements of fatigue within our team, but that Everton team are there for the taking without a doubt.

Howay the lads!
