An Ayoze Perez brace and a sole strike from Salomon Rondon turned the tie around and gave Newcastle all three points – but fortunately for Everton, both scorers that day no longer play for the North East outfit.
One to watch
Newcastle are a side that don’t score very often, averaging just one goal per game in the league.
Joelinton cost a whopping £40 million in the summer and has only managed one goal so far, Miguel Almiron only bagged his first goal for the club against Crystal Palace last week and Andy Carroll is yet to net in his second spell at the club.
Former Liverpool man Jonjo Shelvey will prove to be the Magpies’ main man on Saturday, his shooting ability from outside the box and his delivery of a set-piece could well be the downfall of Everton if he is not dealt with in the correct manner.
The hosts will be without Allan Saint-Maximin for the clash.
Ciaran Clarke, Paul Dummett, Ki Sung-Yong, Jamaal Lascelles, Javier Manquillo and Matt Richie are all doubts.
