The information about absence of Everton midfielder Darron Gibson during next several weeks because of thigh strain is confirmed, which is not pleasing for the team.
In addition, midfielder Bryan Oviedo from Costa Rica has some delays with his paperwork and work permit to be signed in FC Copenhagen, which makes him now to be not eligible.
As to talk about Newcastle team there are also some problems. Goalkeeper Tim Krul has recently received the elbow injury on international duty.
Another injury was received by Holland keeper during the training. Together with Fabricio Coloccini he might be joined on the sidelines. Central defender has got a hamstring strain in the Argentina camp and now is doubtful to play.
Some players have been sidelined since the firsts day of the season. Among them are: Midfielder Cheick Tiote with the calf injury, striker Shola Ameobi, Haris Vuckic, Ryan Taylor, and Danny Simpson. Still midfielder Sammy Ameobi and defenders Shane Ferguson and James Perch can play.
There might be some niggles witnessed, mainly because of rivalry among Alan Pardew and David Moyes which began at early years in the lower divisions. And also because Everton consider themselves to be a natural successor to Newcastle as to talk about ‘outsiders bidding for the top four’ stakes.
If to take the fact that Everton was impressive aside the West Brom, the opponents team itself has proved that last season is not going to be a one off.
The game stat: In order to reach 1,000 in the Premier League Newcastle has to score one goal.
