Injury Expert shares early Newcastle United team news v Everton.

Newcastle are set to be without 12 first-team players for their Premier League clash against Everton on Thursday 7 December, according to injury expert Ben Dinnery.

The injury expert shared the data on his website (4 December) and has listed the players who will not be available and are “ruled out”, for Thursday’s evening clash at Goodison Park.

Sandro Tonali, Nick Pope, Jacob Murphy, Dan Burn, Callum Wilson, Elliot Anderson, Sean Longstaff, Sven Botman. Joe Willock, Harvey Barnes, Javier Manquillo and Matt Target are a whole list of key figures missing for Eddie Howe ahead of Thursday’s game.

Everton

However, former Everton star Anthony Gordon should be available for the game with Dinnery putting his chances at 75 per cent after suffering a groin injury during his match-winning contribution in their 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday (2 December).

Goodison concern

Newcastle United are arguably the most injury-plagued side in the division right now but that does not mean they are in a weaker position as a result, as shown by their tremendous performance against Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils at the weekend.

Howe’s men will enter Thursday’s contest at Goodison Park with plenty of confidence after that win and the football being played under Howe’s management certainly makes them one of the most dangerous teams in the division.

Everton

Everton despite their win over Nottingham Forest – a very crucial one given their run of fixtures coming up – cannot afford to take anything for granted right now, even Newcastle’s injury situation.

However, their home form is of grave concern for Sean Dyche with the Toffees yet to record a victory on home turf since their 3-0 win over Bournemouth on 7 October.

If Everton are to get past their points deduction fodder and pick themselves up again, they’ve got to make Goodison Park a fortress again and a win over the Magpies on Thursday could go a long way in quelling their home doubts right now.

However, they will face off against a former employer in the best form of his career right now in Gordon. Scary.
