Alan Pardew has named an unchanged starting line-up for the third successive Barclays Premier League fixture as Newcastle United entertain Everton (7.45pm kick-off).
The Magpies have won three of their last four games and, unsurprisingly, Pardew has kept faith with the same team which secured a late, late victory over Crystal Palace at St. James' Park on Saturday.
In the continued absence of groin injury-victim Mathieu Debuchy, fellow Frenchman Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is deployed at right-back, with Mike Williamson, captain Fabricio Coloccini and Paul Dummett making up the rest of the back four.
Goalkeeper Tim Krul completes the United line-up against the Toffees.
On the substitutes' bench, there is a place for Steven Taylor, ten years to the day since his first team debut away at Real Mallorca.
Everton (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, John Stones, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; James McCarthy, Gareth Barry; Leon Osman (c), Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu; Romelu Lukaku
Substitutes: Joel Robles, Luke Garbutt, Antolin Alcaraz, Tyias Browning, Aiden McGeady, Kevin Mirallas, Steven Naismith
Referee: Lee Mason (Greater Manchester)
