Gabriel Obertan will miss Newcastle's visit of the Toffees with a toe injury.

The former Manchester United midfielder is sidelined by an infection and is likely to be replaced by Sylvain Marveaux as the Magpies attempt to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign.

Cheik Tiote (knee) remains a doubt, while Shola Ameobi (hamstring) will be out for several weeks yet.

Marouane Fellaini is suspended for Everton after accruing five bookings this season.

However, fellow midfielder Royston Drenthe returns having served a one-match ban in last weekend's defeat at home to Manchester United.

Phil Neville (hamstring), Sylvain Distin and midfielder Tim Cahill, both carrying knocks, will all have late fitness tests.

Newcastle (from): Krul, Elliot, Simpson, R Taylor, Santon, Ferguson, Coloccini, S Taylor, Perch, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Marveaux, Gosling, Guthrie, Ben Arfa, Abeid, Vuckic, Smith, Ba, Best, Lovenkrands, Sammy Ameobi.
