Team news: Ki starts against Toffees
Ki Sung-yueng will start for Newcastle United for the first time since December 2018 when the Magpies entertain Everton on Saturday (3pm kick-off).
The 30-year-old hasn’t featured for United since the 0-0 draw with Fulham just before Christmas but, after a spell on international duty and a stint on the sidelines through injury, he will take his place in midfield for the clash with the Toffees at St. James’ Park.
Magpies boss Rafa Benítez has made two changes to his team for this weekend’s Premier League game, with Ki and DeAndre Yedlin coming into the line-up in place of the injured Sean Longstaff and Javier Manquillo.
Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is back from injury and takes his place on the bench, alongside Mo Diamé.
