Christian Atsu likely to start for Newcastle United against Everton tonight

Christian Atsu is expected to start for Newcastle United against Everton in the English Premier League tonight due to the absence of Matt Ritchie.

Ritchie is suspended for the clash at Goodison Park after picking five accumulated yellow cards.

Manager Rafa Benitez must shuffle his cards due to the unavailability of Matt Ritchie.

The Spaniard must choose between Christian Atsu or Jacob Murphy for the match but appears he will prefer the Ghanaian.

Atsu has been mainly used as a second substitute since the start of the current campaign.

He replaced Matt Ritchie during the side's 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham United over the weekend.
