Newcastle News and Form – Can the Magpies stop Everton?

Newcastle suffered a 4-1 loss out at Manchester United on Thursday. While they are struggling with their away form, things have been much brighter for them on home soil recently. The Magpies are undefeated in their last eight at St James’ Park in the top flight and have won three of their last four there (D1). The draw in that sequence was against Manchester City too. So they have the form to at least avoid defeat. All four of their home wins secured this season have been by one goal margin, so that is a trend which may be worth sizing up.

1-1 Correct Score


Actually, six of the seven league successes that Newcastle have secured have been by that one-goal margin. Newcastle have scored 10 goals in their 9 home games this season. Defensively they have been superb having conceded only 7. Only one third of Newcastle’s home games have made it over 2.5 goals. They have banked a clean sheet in three of their nine home games. Another big trend for this one is the half time draw. All but one of the nine league games at St James’ Park this season has been level at the break. Five of those were 0-0 HT scores.

Everton News and Form – Can Ancelloti get another Everton win?

A 1-0 home success over Burnley saw Everton start brightly under new boss Carlo Ancelotti. That is a four-match undefeated streak of league form for the Toffees now (W2 D2) so they are on the climb. There has been little success by Everton on the road in this campaign, however. Their away record sits at W1 D2 L6 only. They have failed to win 11 of their last 12 top-flight away games. Everton did get a point out of their last road game, a 1-1 draw at Manchester United, who just thumped Newcastle on Boxing Day. So that could mean good omens for Everton in the northeast on Saturday.

Everton have been lacking a clinical edge this season and have averaged exactly a goal per away game. The Toffees have conceded at an average of two goals per road game. Everton have secured back-to-back clean sheets in the top flight, both those were both earned at home. They have taken just one away clean sheet all season. Six of the nine league defeats that Everton have suffered this season has been by a margin of at least two goals. They have scored 7 of their 9 away goals in the first half of fixtures.

Newcastle vs Everton Predictions

Draw: Newcastle run a very tight ship at St James’ Park and Everton, who haven’t been prolific in front of goal, may struggle to get out of this trip with a victory. Overall the draw just has the most appeal in the match outright as this is likely to be a low-scoring fixture.
