Newcastle manager Steve Bruce will be hoping Paul Dummett recovers from a groin problem in time for the visit of Everton.
The Wales international missed the Boxing Day loss at Manchester United with the issue that he picked up last weekend in the win against Crystal Palace.
Jetro Willems overcame a knee injury to start in his place at Old Trafford and Steve Bruce has some knocks to assess in the wake of that match. Jamaal Lascelles (fractured tibia) and Ciaran Clark (calf) remain out along with Matt Ritchie (ankle), Ki Sung-yueng (illness) and Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring).
New Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is set to make changes as he prepares for his second match in charge just 48 hours after winning his first.
Newcastle provisional squad: Dubravka, Darlow, Manquillo, Dummett, Willems, Yedlin, Krafth, Fernandez, Schar, Lejeune, Shelvey, Hayden, S. Longstaff, M. Longstaff, Atsu, Almiron, Joelinton, Carroll, Gayle, Muto.
Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Baines, Delph, Davies, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Stekelenburg, Sidibe, Holgate, Digne, Bernard, Tosun, Kean.
