Kick-off: 1930, 21/01/2020
Stadium: Goodison Park
Everton and Newcastle are locked together on 29 points in the middle of the Premier League table, but we still believe the Toffees are a superior team.
New boss Carlo Ancelotti has made a solid start to his reign on Merseyside and will see this as a good chance to pick up maximum points.
We’re going with 5/4 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time for our first Everton vs Newcastle prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton weren’t at their best when drawing 1-1 at West Ham on Saturday, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelling out Issa Diop’s opener just before the interval.
However, the Toffees have now only lost to Manchester City in their last eight league games, winning half of those fixtures.
Calvert-Lewin told the club website: “I thought we under-performed. It was disappointing not to play to our strengths and the patterns of play we know we can execute.
“It was disappointing not to kick on from the equaliser. In the end, it’s a good point, but we know all three were there for the taking.”
It seems clear that Ancelotti has already urged his players to be more ambitious and they had previously beaten Brighton on home turf.
The Toffees have gone over five hours without conceding a Premier League goal at Goodison Park, so 27/20 they win to nil stands out from the Everton vs Newcastle odds.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Sidibe, Sigurdsson, Davies, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Walcott, Bernard.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle produced the perfect smash-and-grab performance when edging out Chelsea 1-0 at St James’ Park over the weekend.
The Magpies had just 30 per cent of possession but Isaac Hayden’s stoppage-time header from Allan Saint-Maximin’s cross saw them end up with all three points.
Hayden told NUFC TV: “It was a fantastic ball from Allan. It was almost on a plate, really, it was harder to miss – and I couldn’t have picked a better time.”
However, that memorable victory was marred by yet another injury blow, as Jetro Willems ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.
The loan signing will now be sidelined for the rest of the season, while Steve Bruce has also revealed Paul Dummett may need surgery to repair a tendon injury.
“It’s unfortunate because Jetro was just settling in well and adapting to life in the Premier League,” said Bruce. “He’s been a very decent player for us, so we’ll miss him.”
Newcastle are a spirited bunch and do not take many bad beatings, but this is a tough place to travel to with a depleted squad.
Let’s finish off our Everton vs Newcastle betting tips by taking 5/2 for a home win and under 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Clark, Lascelles, Willems, Krafth, Fernandez, Shelvey, Hayden, Almiron, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin.
