Newcastle United’s expected starting XI against Everton, with Lewis Hall aiming for only his second Premier League start of the season.

Newcastle United’s starting XI against Everton is expected to change owing to injuries and suspensions.

Eddie Howe’s team rallied from 3-1 down to defeat West Ham United 4-3 on Saturday, with braces from Alexander Isak and substitute Harvey Barnes cancelling out goals from Michail Antonio, Mohammed Kudus, and Jarrod Bowen.

However, the triumph, which moved United up to eighth in the table, one point behind the Hammers in seventh, came at a cost, with three new injuries and a suspension blow.

Jamaal Lascelles suffered an ACL injury just 16 minutes in and is expected to miss six to nine months, along with teammate Sven Botman. Howe is also awaiting updates on Tino Livramento (ankle) and Miguel Almiron (knee), who both withdrew in the second half of the week.

Anthony Gordon is another player who United will undoubtedly miss. The England international converted both of Isak’s penalties and set up Barnes’ winner before receiving a second yellow card in stoppage time for booting the ball away. He will serve a one-match punishment against his former club, missing only his second Premier League encounter this season.

Lewis Hall, Elliot Anderson, and Barnes all impressed from the bench against West Ham and have built a good claim to start against Everton. NewcastleWorld anticipates Newcastle’s lineup this evening (kick-off 7:30pm):

1. GK: Martin Dubravka

Trippier has missed the last three matches due to a calf injury, but he is getting closer to returning. If not fit, Emil Krafth is likely to be chosen.

3. CB: Fabian Schar

Schar is generally Newcastle’s Mr Consistent, but his performances have been rather up and down recently, maybe reflecting the team’s form.

4. CB: Dan Burn

Following Jamaal Lascelles’ horrific injury, Dan Burn will most likely be given a run at centre-back having playing left-back for the previous two years.
