Newcastle met a heavy loss against Manchester United in their last match and will now look to recover when they will host Everton on Saturday. Everton scored a late goal in their home match against Burnley and extended their undefeated streak.
Everton (6-9-4) were dominant in their home match against Burnley but had to score a late goal in order to win that match by a slim 0-1. That means that they are now undefeated in 90 minutes of play in their last five matches in all competitions (2-0-3). Everton are sitting at the 13th spot of the league table with 22 points, four points ahead of the red zone. But they have been weak on the road (1-6-2).
Newcastle (7-8-4) took the lead in their away match against Manchester United but went on to pay the price, as they eventually conceded four goals to lose by 1-4. However, that was just their second loss in their last six matches (3-2-1). Newcastle are now sitting at the 10th spot of the league table with 25 points, seven ahead of the red line and seven behind the top-four. They have been really hard to beat at home (4-1-4), where they are undefeated since their first home match of the season.
Newcastle beat Everton by 2-3 in this venue last season but that was their only win in the last seven against this opponent (1-5-1). Everton have stood greatly in this venue over the past five years (4-2-0) and can now challenge Newcastle for some points here. Taking a shot with the Under 2.25 Goals here.
