Having rested many players during the League Cup last week against Fulham, Roberto Martinez is likely going to field many of his top players from the start including the likes of Tim Howard, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka.
After scoring the winner in their 3-2 win against West Brom, Romelu Lukaku could make his first start for Everton meanwhile Darron Gibson is likely to feature after returning from injury in the League Cup last week.
The game will also mark a special occasion for new signing Gareth Barry who is set to become only the 10th player to make 500 appearances in the Premier League.
Newcastle will very much be keen to spoil Everton’s party though as The Magpies look to improve on a disjointed start that seen the side fall to 17th in the table.
In an attempt to get Newcastle back to winning ways, Alan Pardew will likely to stick with the “French revolution” that has befallen St. James Park over the past year as Hatem Ben Arfa, Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye are all likely to appear from the start.
However, Pardew is also able to select two of the team’s most loyal servants as both Steven Taylor and Shola Ameobi are fit again after suffering injuries and illnesses that kept them out of recent action.
But there still remains doubt over the inclusion of other well-known squad members with Argentine playmaker Jonas Gutierrez considered a doubt for Monday’s game despite having fully recovered from a hamstring problem in the past few days.
Having been quite inconsistent over the past few games, Newcastle will need to be at their best if they are to stand any chance of beating an Everton side that are steadily growing in confidence as the season unfolds.
