Everton vs Newcastle
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Two in-form sides are set to take on each other on Wednesday evening at Goodison as Everton host Newcastle United in the 15th round of the Premier League. The Toffees climbed up to sixth in the league ladder after winning two and drawing one of last three league outings. They won five of last seven matches in the Premier League.
The head coach Marco Silva can be thrilled with his men’s defensive performances as Everton endured 180 minutes without conceding a goal in matches against Chelsea and Cardiff City. Gylfi Sigurdsson did the job at the opposite end of the court last weekend when the Toffees dispatched the Bluebirds 1-0 in front of the home crowd. Will Everton be able to keep the splendid spell of form going on Wednesday evening when the Magpies come to visit Goodison?
Everton vs Newcastle: Head-to-head
Everton lead the H2H tie by five wins coming into their 158th meeting with the Magpies.
The Toffees, however, completely dominated in the most recent head to head history.
Everton won each of last five matches against Newcastle United who failed to find the back of the net at all in the process.
Everton vs Newcastle: Prediction
Rafael Benitez’s men might struggle to create in the final third given their poor head to head record in recent matches against Everton as well as Toffees’ form coming into this one. Nevertheless, the visitors have full rights to hope for the best here as they made it three wins on the spin in the Premier League.
Such a fantastic run moved the Magpies up to the 13th place in the standings. Their recent games have also been short on goalmouth action which is why we don’t quite expect to see a high-scoring thriller when they come face to face with Everton here.
Under 2.5 goals FT is a must-take pick at the odds of 1.90, while you can alternatively back the draw at the half time at 2.20.
