Everton are looking to bounce back from defeat for the first time this season when they head north to Tyneside.
Four straight wins were followed by a 2-2 draw in the Merseyside derby but their unbeaten start ended last week as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Southampton.
Let’s put that down as a bad day at the office and back the Toffees for a fifth win of the season at 19/20 as our opening Newcastle vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle are yet to record the same result in two successive games but the goals have been flowing at least.
Each of their two wins were followed by a home defeat, with both of those losses proceeding a draw on the road!
There have been at least two goals in all six games and the three matches at St James’ Park have produced 12 goals, although only four of those were at the right end for Steve Bruce’s men.
Injuries are not helping, with several players having to play out of position, and Jonjo Shelvey is the latest to join the casualty list.
The midfielder is expected to be out for a month after hernia surgery and will be missed, with Everton’s new-look midfield likely to dominate.
Looking at the Newcastle vs Everton odds, we like the look of 9/5 for an away win and over 2.5 goals.
Last Newcastle line-up: Darlow, Schar, Lascelles, Lewis, Fernandez, Hendrick, Fraser, Murphy, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Lucas Digne’s red card added to a miserable afternoon at Southampton for Everton and the full-back will be suspended along with Richarlison this weekend.
Carlo Ancelotti admitted his team were well beaten at St Mary’s but did not seem too concerned, saying: “It was not a good day and not a good performance.
“We are here to talk about the first defeat and I think we have to move forward because of course we don’t like to lose games but in football it happens.
“It arrived after a fantastic start so we have to move forward with the same belief we arrived with here. It can happen.”
There is still plenty to like about Everton this season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin on seven goals already and James Rodriguez looking one of the signings of the summer.
It is worth noting the Toffees have been leading 2-1 at half-time in three of their four wins so let’s back the same score after 45 minutes once more at 15/1 for our final Newcastle vs Everton prediction.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Digne, Mina, Godfrey, Allan, Sigurdsson, Doucoure, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi.
