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).

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
