Eddie Howe takes his Newcastle United side to Everton tomorrow night for a Premier League match with Sean Dyche's side.

Newcastle's injury crisis worsened again at the weekend when Nick Pope dislocated his shoulder during the game with Manchester United and now faces four months on the sidelines.

That means Eddie Howe will be forced to make a change for the first time in four games, but we believe that will be his only one.

How we think we'll line up to take on Everton

Goalkeeper

Martin Dubravka - The only change we're expecting in light of Nick Pope's unfortunate injury. Dubravka still wears the Number 1 shirt, and it's time to remind us why.

Defence

Tino Livramento - Our new left-back will return to stake another claim to Dan Burn's place in the team.

Fabian Schar - Faultless again against Manchester United, if he plays with that same intensity and attacking flair on Thursday he's going to be in that star-man mix again.

Jamaal Lascelles - Captain Fantastic is playing the best football of his career, let's hope he can continue on Thursday.

Kieran Trippier - Tripps seems reborn since the last international break, now with Tino easing the burden in going forward he's back to his best.

One change for Newcastle

Midfield

Joelinton - The Brazilian Beast was our star-man against Man United for all the work he does under the radar. No doubt we'll see that again at Goodison Park.

Bruno Guimaraes - Our midfield talisman has kept the side ticking over nicely from his little control room in the middle of the park. Long may it continue.

Lewis Miley - What can we say about this little gem that we haven't said already? Calm, assured and mature well beyond his years.

Forwards

Anthony Gordon - A huge game for the former Toffee. He's likely to come in for a lot of stick but provided he keeps his head, he will be our key man.

Alexander Isak - Everton fans still have nightmares about what he did at Goodison last season. Can he do it again?

Miguel Almiron - Miggy missed a couple of chances to score against Man United so he may feel he owes us one tomorrow.

These predictions started out fun, but at the minute the team picks itself due to the number of players we have missing.

Hopefully, it won't be too long before we can mix it up a bit and keep other teams on their toes.
