Following a draw at home to Leicester City on Wednesday night, Everton are chasing their first Premier League win of the year at Goodison Park. Carlo Ancelotti’s side won their first three home games of the season by a goal margin of at least two goals but are yet to do so since then.
However, their two wins since have been against Chelsea and Arsenal and the Toffees have now played at home to four teams out of the current, which suggests their home form has been better than it may seem.
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has come under serious pressure from Toon fans recently having gone nine games without a win and scoring just three goals in their last eight games. The Magpies dependence on Callum Wilson has shown, with the side really struggling for goals whilst he is out of form and haven’t scored an away goal in five consecutive games across all competitions.
We expect Newcastle to sit back for the majority of the game, but the threat of Calvert-Lewin and James Rodríguez will prove to be too much with Everton winning comfortably. Sky Bet are offering odds of 9/4 for Everton to win the game with a (-1) goal handicap.
