            Newcastle vs Everton Prediction & Betting Tips

            Newcastle host Everton in the Premier League, looking to build on a dramatic win at the weekend and climb the table further in their search for European football.

            Date: 02/04/24

            Kick-off time: 19:30

            Venue: St James’ Park

            Eddie Howe’s side currently occupy eighth place in the league following their victory over West Ham. The win put them just a point behind the Hammers in seventh, with a game in hand. However, they have suffered from a number of injury issues which could significantly impact them going forward. That being said, they are nicely placed to compete for the top seven. Victory this weekend could see them move up the table further, but a loss would present an opportunity to a number of teams below to close the gap or jump ahead.

            In contrast, Everton are embroiled in a relegation battle as they fight to preserve their top flight status. Despite their six point deduction, the Toffees are on 25 points, three above the bottom three, though they have played a game less than the teams around them. Three more points could create some breathing room, but any dropped points may plunge them into deeper trouble, especially after their heart-breaking late defeat to Bournemouth at the weekend.

            Only Sheffield United have scored less goals than Everton this season. They have scored just 30 times so far, and four in their last six. Their opponents have scored nine in three league games and have not been shutout since late December. Top scorer Alexander Isak has scored 14, including at least one in each of his last three league appearances. The visitors’ struggles in front of goal are highlighted by the fact that only one player has scored more than three goals this campaign.

            The hosts have been the dominant side in recent meetings. In the last seven matchups, the Magpies have won five and lost two, all in the Premier League. Both of Everton’s victories have come with clean sheets, with the most recent being the reverse fixture earlier this season. The Toffees prevailed 3-0 with Dwight McNeil, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Beto all scoring late on to take home three points.

            Newcastle

            Jamaal Lascelles, Miguel Almiron and Tino Livramento were all substituted in the last game with injuries. Anthony Gordon will serve a suspension after picking up a late red card. Sven Botman recently aggravated a knee injury which resulted in surgery, ruling him out for the foreseeable future. Lewis Miley returned from international duty with a back injury, with his recovery time yet to be determined. Callum Wilson, Joelinton and Nick Pope remain long-term absentees.

            Everton

            Arnaut Danjuma has been sidelined for a while, but could be set for a return sometime in April. Vitalii Mykolenko may return from an illness. Sean Dyche has no new injury concerns otherwise.

            Form Guide

            Newcastle

            In their last five games, Newcastle have won two, lost two and drawn one. As the league enters the final stretch, Newcastle have had an inconsistent run. It began with FA Cup Fifth Round action against lower league Blackburn, and after 90 minutes the game was tied at 1-1 after Sammie Szmodics cancelled out Anthony Gordon’s opener. They advanced to the next round as they prevailed 4-3 on penalties.

            This set up a quarter-final matchup with Manchester City, their last game before the international break. Their cup journey was cut short, as the champions won 2-0. Bernardo Silva scored a double before half-time in what was a comfortable victory. Newcastle barely threatened, mustering just two attempts and 27% possession in the entire game.

            Between these two ties were two league games against Wolves and Chelsea. First they hosted Wolves, and enjoyed a commanding 3-0 victory. Alexander Isak opened the scoring early on, before the lead was doubled by Gordon before the break. Tino Livramento completed the win in second half stoppage time. Their trip to Chelsea ended in defeat as they lost 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. The Blues went ahead after six minutes through striker Nicolas Jackson, but this was cancelled out by an Isak strike. Cole Palmer and Mykhailo Mudryk gave the hosts a cushion, before Jacob Murphy pulled one back to nerve the home fans. However, this came too late as Chelsea managed to hold on.

            Their most recent game was at home to West Ham, in which they won 4-3 in a thriller. They took the lead through an Isak penalty, but the visitors turned it around in controversial fashion as Michail Antonio and then Mohammed Kudus scored before the break. Jarrod Bowen added a third to create a cushion but Harvey Barnes scored a brace late on following another Isak spot kick to complete the stunning comeback.

            Everton

            In their last five games, Everton have drawn two and lost three. As the relegation battle heats up, Everton have entered a poor run of form at the worst time, as they are winless in this stretch.

            It began with a pair of 1-1 draws, first against Crystal Palace. Jordan Ayew put the visitors ahead in the 66th minute, but Amadou Onana salvaged a point for the Toffees with a late strike. This preceded another tie at Brighton, though this was a huge missed opportunity to pick up three points. It was goalless for the majority of the game, but Jarrad Branthwaite found the back of the net with less than 20 minutes to go to put his side in front. Billy Gilmour then saw red for the hosts, strengthening Everton’s control of the game further. However, with mere seconds left, Lewis Dunk stepped up to convert in the 95th minute to send the visiting fans home heartbroken.

            They could not respond to this setback as they lost 3-1 at home to West Ham. Beto gave them the lead shortly after the restart, but once again they were unable hold on, with Kurt Zouma equalising six minutes later. It was more late heartbreak as Tomas Soucek and Edson Alvarez scored in stoppage time to win the Hammers the game. Another defeat followed at Old Trafford with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford converting a pair of first half penalties to win the game 2-0. The visitors would have been disappointed to not come away with anything given the chances they produced.

            Their most recent game was a trip to Bournemouth. Their search for a win goes on as they fell to a late 2-1 defeat. The hosts took the lead through Dominic Solanke, but Everton thought they had salvaged a point when Beto equalised late on. They ended up leaving with nothing after a disaster at the back in which Seamus Coleman converted into his own net.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Everton are in desperate need of a win as they try to navigate a relegation battle. Newcastle have been inconsistent of late in their battle for European qualification. The visitors may get on the scoresheet, but the Magpies home advantage will be too much to overcome – Newcastle 2-1 Everton
