Everton vs Newcastle United Prediction
Everton were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on West Ham. In the tightly-contested game, either team chipped in with a goal apiece to split the points.
Meanwhile, Newcastle were at home against 2016-17 Champions Chelsea. Still, the Magpies secured a win with the sole goal and winner of the fixture coming in the 90+4th minute.
As things stand, Everton are the clear favorites this Tuesday. First and foremost, they are considered to be one of the best teams in England after the traditional top-six, and on top of that have the home advantage too.
On the other hand Newcastle are given no such recognition, and are expected to deal with the away handicap as well.
Moreover, ever since the arrival of Ancelotti at the helm, the Toffees have been performing well, especially so at home.
In addition, Everton were unbeaten in eight of the last ten overall matches, and were so in 15 of their former 18 in front of the home crowd. The team also won their last two appearances here, and kept clean sheets in the past three matches.
On the contrary, Newcastle were winless in five of their previous seven games, and are on a four-match winless run on the road. They were also winless in eight of their preceding ten fixtures away from home, and in fact had lost six of these.
Importantly, the Toffees won the reverse fixture just a month back, and then they even had the away handicap to deal with. Also, Everton recorded ten of the last twelve h2h wins, and had won four of the previous five at this venue.
Furthermore, Ancelotti’s men have lost just once in front of the home crowd since 2001. They also kept clean sheets in three of the last four meetings here, while scoring twice or more in 11 of the previous 15.
Taking into account all these findings, it’s inferred that Everton have a great opportunity to post a convincing win this match-day.
