NEWCASTLE have named an unchanged starting line-up for this evening's Premier League home game with Everton.

Alan Pardew has stuck with the side that beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at the weekend as he prepares to serve the final game of his three-match stadium ban.

The selection means Hatem Ben Arfa remains on the substitutes' bench despite helping to turn the game in Newcastle's favour after he was introduced as a second-half replacement on Saturday.

Having scored a stoppage-time winner against Palace, Papiss Cisse will continue to partner Luuk de Jong in attack.

Everton boss David Moyes has made two changes to the team that beat Swansea last weekend, with Leon Osman and Gerard Deulofeu coming in for Kevin Mirallas and Aiden McGeady.

NEWCASTLE (4-4-2): Krul; Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett; Sissoko, Tiote, Anita, Gouffran; de Jong, Cisse.

Subs: Elliot (gk), Haidara, S Taylor, Gosling, Marveaux, Ben Arfa, Shola Ameobi.

EVERTON (4-2-3-1): Howard; Coleman, Distin, Stones, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Osman, Barkley, Deulofeu; Lukaku.

Subs: Robles (gk), Garbutt, Alcaraz, Browning, McGeady, Mirallas, Naismith.
