Premier League: Everton v Newcastle United match report

A
look ahead to Monday’s Premier League fixture at the Goodison Park

Everton will be hoping for better fortunes at Goodison Park than on Tuesday, when Fulham consigned Roberto Martinez to his first defeat as Everton manager.

Darron Gibson is pushing for a start after making a successful return from a knee problem during the game. Arouna Kone is also back in contention after recovering from injury.

Steven Pienaar and Leon Osman hope to return to match fitness, while on-loan Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu could be involved after an impressive performance in midweek.

Alan Pardew is hoping for a strong response to their disappointing defeat to Premier League new boys Hull last week.

Cheick Tiote could be in the starting line-up after making a successful return from a hamstring injury in the Capital One Cup defeat of Leeds.

Pardew also has Shola Ameobi, Yohan Cabaye and Jonas Gutierrez at his disposal once again after they recovered from their respective injury problems.
