Everton News and Form
The Toffees were heartbroken deep into stoppage time of their Merseyside derby effort at Liverpool on the weekend. A mistake from keeper Jordan Pickford helped Liverpool bag the only goal of the game in the 96th minute. It leaves Everton at W5 D1 L2 in their last eight league games which is still a good return.
The Toffees are running very well at home at the moment. Not only do they have an overall record of W5 D1 L1 this season on home soil in the EPL but they have won their last four in a row there. That could be slightly skewed though as they haven’t played anyone currently in the top half of the table at home.
Everton have a clean sheet in two of their last three games. Everton to win to nil is at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm) and they have bagged a clean sheet in 43% of their home fixtures this term. Still, even with those clean sheets earned at Goodison Park, 29% of their home games have gone over 3.5 goals.
The Toffees have netted 13 goals in their seven home games, and 62% of those have been in the second half of games. The Toffees have been level at the halftime break in five of their home games this term and have conceded 67% of their home goals in the first half of games. Everton have scored first in five of their seven home games this season.
Everton v Newcastle Head to Head
Everton took a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last season
The Toffees are on a five-match winning streak against Newcastle
Newcastle have failed to score in their last five against Everton
Everton have won their last four home games against the Magpies
Newcastle are winless in six at Goodison
Newcastle News and Form
Newcastle were moving along well on a good four-match undefeated streak of form. Then West Ham showed up at St James’ Park on the weekend and smashed the Magpies 3-0. Away from home Newcastle are just a W1 D3 L2 for the season. Their only away win happened out at Burnley, who are currently sat in the bottom two in the table. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm).
There have been just the five away goals scored by the Magpies this season. All of their five away goals have cropped up in the first half of games. Newcastle haven’t been defensively bad though, shipping just six goals in six away games. Four of those six have come against them after the half time break. That has helped them sit level at half time in four of their six away games and three of those were 0-0 draws.
So that should appeal as a half-time correct score option. Only Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have managed were league goals than Newcastle this season. Everton to win by a one-goal margin is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm),. The trend there is that Newcastle’s two away defeats (Man City and Man Utd) have both only been by a one-goal margin
Who will win – Everton v Newcastle Predictions
It should be Everton all the way in this one. Their home form speaks for itself really and the Magpies got their recent away points at sides beneath them in the table. Everton can deliver maximum points. Home win to nil.
