Ancelotti Makes Two Changes For Newcastle Clash

French duo Djibril Sidibe and Morgan Schneiderlin return to Everton’s team as manager Carlo Ancelotti makes two changes for Tuesday’s Premier League meeting with Newcastle United.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, then, will aim to continue his prolific form next to Italian teenager Moise Kean at the tip of Everton’s attack.

Schneiderlin, who last featured in December’s comprehensive home victory over Chelsea, is joined in midfield by Fabian Delph.

Another Frenchman Lucas Digne continues at left-back and captains Ancelotti’s team.

Sidibe starts on the right of defence, with Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate Everton’s centre-halves for the second successive game.

Bernard and Theo Walcott occupy Everton’s wide positions.

Jordan Pickford, meanwhile, reaches the landmark of 100 consecutive Premier League appearances for Everton, the goalkeeper playing every minute of the Blues’ top-flight games since transferring from Sunderland in summer 2017.

Anthony Gordon, who made his Premier League debut as a substitute in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United, is again named on the bench.

Michael Keane sat out that match with a neck problem but is fit enough to be included among Everton’s substitutes.

Ancelotti will also be able to call on Tom Davies, Seamus Coleman, Leighton Baines, Oumar Niasse and goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
