Newcastle news: Callum Wilson thinks £4m player could start for Eddie Howe in Everton vs Newcastle

Given the results which have taken place around Newcastle in the Premier League recently, their away meeting with Everton seems to be a must-win game now. Although, it won't be easy as Goodison Park always provides a great atmosphere and Sean Dyche is a tough manager to crack - Not to mention how motivated the home side will be given their docking of points recently.

However, Callum Wilson, who is one of the players affected by Newcastle's growing list of injuries, thinks his side has what it takes to win and he has pinpointed one player in particular. According to a report by Geordie Boot Boys (quoting The Footballer's Football Podcast), Wilson thinks that Martin Dubravka has what it takes to start in the Premier League.

For those who don't know, allow me to be the bearer of bad news. Nick Pope picked up an injury against Manchester United recently as it's a shoulder injury which looks to see the Englishman ruled out for the rest of the year. With this in mind, Eddie Howe has no option but to start his backup option, Martin Dubravka.

The Slovak goalkeeper has plenty of Premier League experience, so he will feel confident to step up to the mark. Hearing this from Callum Wilson will only prove the solidarity within the squad at the moment...

"“But basically when push comes to shove they are all at the club for a reason. They are all there, professional, they work day in and day out for an opportunity to arise and now it arises, second goes to first and third goes to second. That’s how it works.

Of course they can step in, is the answer to your question.”"
