Everton vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
The Magpies might be the worst team in the competition at the moment – judging their form. They are losing game after game, and even against relegation-battlers. They have also been conceding goals in plenty during the stretch as well.
Going on, they have also been on a worrying run on the road for the past several match-ups, and by the looks of things, they would be a part of the bottom-most tier of the table very soon.
Meanwhile, the Toffees have a match in hand, and are still placed seventh in the table. On top of that, they also are in impressive form at present, and are on a course to get to the top-four.
In addition, the next two fixtures for the fifth-placed Liverpool are against Tottenham (currently in the sixth spot), and West Ham (at the fourth position as of now).
And as such, the struggling Jurgen Klopp’s men would be expected to drop a considerable amount of points in the coming weeks.
This is the right opportunity for Carlo Ancelotti’s men to make a push for the podium.
Likely, expect Everton to deliver a commendable performance this weekend, and secure the three points.
Everton vs Newcastle: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Toffees had recorded 11 of the previous 13 overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in three of the past four encounters.

Everton vs Newcastle Prediction
Ancelotti’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day at home by Leicester. In the meantime, Steve Bruce’s men lost 1-2 at home against Leeds.
Going on, the Magpies are on a six-fixture losing run, and they are on an 11-match winless streak. They had also lost 11 of their preceding 15 games, and have recorded a total of just two league wins on the road since July.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won seven of their former ten match-ups, and have lost just against three teams at home this whole season. One of these teams were Manchester United as well.
On top of that, the Toffees also have a good h2h record against this foe in the last two decades.
For the reasons, expect Everton to post the win this weekend, and score in plenty as well.
