Everton vs Newcastle: Predictions
Everton’s stunning start to the season has left the Toffees in a great position to propose a serious challenge for this season’s top-four spots. Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival at Goodison Park has brought a new lease of life to what seemed a stagnant Everton side who could move ahead of their rivals Liverpool should they win their game-in-hand on Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The pressure on Steve Bruce has hit an all-time high following Newcastle’s midweek defeat to Leeds United. The Magpies now lie just six points off the relegation zone and 17th placed Fulham now have a game in hand on the struggling Tynesiders.
The Toffees failed to capitalise on a Jamie Vardy-less Leicester City during the week but the point kept them well within the fight for a top-four spot. Summer-signing James Rodriguez shone against the Foxes and his first-half strike gave Everton the lead, but an error from Jordan Pickford left the hosts ruing a missed opportunity.
With no win since early December, Newcastle’s freefall has coincided with their struggles in front of goal with Bruce’s side only netting five times since their last victory against West Brom in December.

Everton vs Newcastle: Match Stats
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s scintillating start to the season has since plateaued and the England striker has failed to convert since early December against Burnley. Only three other teams have conceded more goals than Newcastle (34) this season which offers Calvert-Lewin the perfect opportunity to get back on track in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
Isaac Hayden leads the tally for most tackles from a Newcastle player (32) and with his side likely to be under sustained Everton pressure he may add to that tally in order to keep the hosts at bay. Abdoulaye Doucouré is expected to return for Saturday’s clash and without Allan in midfield, he will be Everton’s go-to man to break down any Newcastle attacks.

Everton have struggled in their recent meetings against the Magpies, with only one win in their last five meetings. The high-flying Toffees’ downfall began with their defeat at St. James’ Park, however, since Everton have got themselves back on track – the same cannot be said for Newcastle.
