Baines: Among Everton big guns who will return against Newcastle

Team news, statistics and our verdict for the weekend's action in the Barclays Premier League.Monday, September 30

Everton v Newcastle

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is set to revert back to his first-choice line-up. Goalkeeper Tim Howard, Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka, Gareth Barry, Ross Barkley and Kevin Mirallas will all come back in. Darron Gibson made his first appearance of the season in midweek but fellow midfielder Steven Pienaar (hamstring) has missed the last two games while Leon Osman sat out Wednesday's match with a groin problem.

Manager Alan Pardew will restore his big guns to the Newcastle starting line-up. Midfielders Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa and striker Loic Remy were rested for the 2-0 Capital One Cup third-round victory over Leeds. Defender Steven Taylor (hamstring) could also be involved, as could striker Shola Ameobi following his recovery from flu, but midfielder Jonas Gutierrez (hamstring) is likely to miss out despite his return to full training.

Last season: Newcastle 1 Everton 2, Everton 2 Newcastle 2

Last five league matches: Everton D D D W W; Newcastle L D W W L

Top scorers: Leighton Baines & Steven Naismith (Everton) 2; Hatem Ben Arfa, Loic Remy & Yoan Gouffran (Newcastle) 2

Referee: Phil Dowd (Staffordshire).

Our verdict: Everton Newcastle

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
