Newcastle United v Everton

Team News

Roberto Martinez says he will decide on Tuesday whether Phil Jagielka will play against Newcastle United.

Jagielka is back fit but may not be risked at St James' Park with Everton also visiting Fulham on Sunday.

Steven Pienaar remains sidelined and could be back for the Crystal Palace game on 16 April.

Martinez said at his Monday press conference: "Phil Jagielka is medically fully fit. We are going to a make a decision on him tomorrow.

"If we can get Phil fit for Tuesday or Sunday it's going to be a big bonus. You always miss your club captain.

"He is such a big influence that we have missed him. But there is the reality that we have been able to win football games without him and that's credit to the players who have come in. That's what you need from a squad because over the course of the season you are going to get injuries and suspensions.

"Phil has been desperate on the sidelines to play and that develops a real desire. He brings a real enthusiasm and is a true leader. You want these players to be on the pitch and available but sometimes you have to accept injuries will happen.

"While he has been away he has been recovering well and regenerating, and I think we are going to see a real fresh Phil Jagielka until May 17."

Bryan Oviedo, Lacina Traore, Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone are all still injured.

Phil JagielkaRoberto Martinez will make a late decision on whether to select fit-again skipper Phil Jagielka for Tuesday's game.

Newcastle are expected to again be without star striker Loic Remy who has missed the last two matches with an ankle injury.

The French forward joined on loan from Queens Park Rangers in August and has been Newcastle’s outstanding performer this term with 13 goals.

Full-backs Mathieu Debuchy and Davide Santon are also doubts for the Magpies.

Form

This fixture was due to take place in early March but was rearranged as a consequence of Everton’s FA Cup commitments.

Everton travel to the Tyneside buoyed by the back-to-back home wins against Cardiff and Swansea but they are out to arrest a run of five Premier League away games without victory. The last success on the road in the top-flight was the 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium in December.

There is again the opportunity for the Toffees to leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur. The Londoners moved back above the Blues into fifth in the table on Sunday, but this is the first of two games in hand that Roberto Martinez’s men have over Spurs.

Lukaku nets against NewcastleLukaku nets his second goal in the 3-2 win over Newcastle earlier in the season.

Papiss Cisse’s last-gasp strike earned Newcastle a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Crystal Palace on Saturday – the Magpies’ third win in their last four outings.

The currently occupy eighth position in the Premier League standings, eight points adrift of Everton and having played a game more.

Last Meeting

Everton 3-2 Newcastle United – September 2013

Romelu Lukaku’s brace and Ross Barkley’s first Goodison strike saw Everton race into a three-goal half-time lead when Newcastle travelled to Merseyside in September.

The visitors responded well after the interval, netting twice through Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy, but the Blues’ first-half superiority was enough to claim a deserved 3-2 victory.

It’s been over 14 months since Everton’s last trip to St James’ Park, where again the Toffees were winners. Papiss Cisse’s early strike was cancelled out by Leighton Baines’ thunderous free-kick, before Victor Anichebe stepped off the bench in the second period to win the contest 2-1.
