Newcastle vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle-upon-Tyne).
Everton held table-toppers Liverpool to a goalless draw in last weekend’s Merseyside derby at Goodison and they will generally come into Saturday’s tie with bottom-half Newcastle United high on confidence, The Toffees thus kept two straight clean sheets following a fine 0-3 victory over relegation strugglers Cardiff City away on the Welsh soil beforehand.
The visitors will fancy the continuation of such fine defensive shape here against Newcastle United who own the second weakest attacking record in the entire league. The team led by Rafael Benitez also failed to find the back of the net in last weekend’s 2-0 loss to West Ham United away at London Stadium. Nevertheless, it should by no means be a one-way street for the visitors as the Magpies won four on the trot in front of the home crowd in the Premier League. They shipped just one goal in the process and the streak includes a huge victory over defending champions Manchester City.

Newcastle vs Everton: Prediction
Goals are hard to come by in Newcastle’s games and we have no reasons to expect a high-scoring scenario when they play host to the Toffees. The visitors also grew in confidence defensively with back-to-back clean sheets kept in last two Premier League rounds.
Under 2.5 goals FT is a must-take bet at the odds of 1.57, while braver tipsters can even go for a goalless draw at the odds of 8.00.
