Last time out the club came from 2-1 down to beat West Ham 3-2 away and despite losing to Fulham in the Capital One Cup midweek Martinez will be full of confidence against a Newcastle side that lost 3-2 at home to Hull last week and has already conceded 5 goals on the road.
Alan Pardew’s side currently sit in 15th spot on 7 points but with his side just three points off 5th spot such the Magpies boss won’t be panicking just yet.
He will however be panicking should his side concede free kicks given the form Leighton Baines is in.
The England left back scored two stunning free-kicks last weekend and when asked how he planned to stop the defender Pardew joked “We have got this great idea – we are going to have a wall and then piggy-back a wall on top, and then we are going to forget about the cross.”
Pardew has his own dead ball specialist in the shape of Yohan Cabaye and with the midfielder now back in form and favour the French midfielder will be keen to repay the faith shown in him by the club. Despite sustaining a small knock against Hull last weekend the one-time Arsenal target is expected to be fit.
Newcastle will definitely be missing Shola Ameobi (knock), Jonas Gutierrez and Steven Taylor (both hamstring), while Fabricio Coloccini looks set to shake off a knock sustained in the win over Leeds to feature at Goodison Park.
Papiss Cisse is another player back on song following his first goal since April in the league cup win over Leeds.
Darron Gibson meanwhile should feature after making his comeback midweek against Fulham while centre-back Antolin Alcaraz (groin) is out. There are doubts over the availability of Steven Pienaar (hamstring) while Arouna Kone and Leon Osman are edging closer to a return to first team action although Monday night might be too soon.
