Newcastle vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

Newcastle vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Everton

Everton have been buoyed by the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti and are looking to build on their win over Burnley, but Newcastle will be a tough test.

The Magpies may have started the season slowly, but have been somewhat impressive lately.

Newcastle have only lost two of their last six games in the Premier League, with a 1-0 loss at Burnley and 4-1 defeat against Manchester United.

They also won three of those games, with the other result a 2-2 draw with title-chasers Manchester City.

Though, Everton will test the Magpies.

The Toffees look somewhat reborn after the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti.

After Duncan Ferguson steadied the ship, Ancelotti has built on his good work by getting the win over Burnley on Boxing Day in what was a dominant performance.

Now, if they were to beat Newcastle, they could start mounting a very late challenge for a top-six spot.

Newcastle vs Everton: Who will win?

Despite their home advantage, Newcastle are actually the underdogs going into this game.

They are priced at 12/5 to win the game.

Meanwhile, after their win against Burnley on Boxing Day, Everton are the favourites.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are priced at 23/20 to win the game.

A draw is priced at 23/10, while a 1-1 draw, as we predict, is priced at 6/1.

Both teams to score could be an attractive option, with both teams susceptible to conceding.

That’s priced at 4/5, while both teams not to score is 19/20.

Onto the goalscorer market and Everton dominate the top of the list, as expected.

Richarlison is the favourite to score first, priced at 5/1.

Moise Kean comes in at second favourite, priced at 11/2.

Newcastle’s most likely player to score according to the bookies is Joelinton, who comes in at 13/2.

Our pick of the bunch goes to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has been in fine form of late.

He’s scored three in his last four games, while his overall performances have also been brilliant.

Priced at 13/2 to score first, he’s our man for the job this weekend.

Newcastle vs Everton match preview

Newcastle’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester United was disappointing, to say the least.

After a pretty impressive run of form, there were plenty of reasons for Newcastle to be positive.

Things got even better when Matty Longstaff gave Newcastle the lead early on at Old Trafford.

The midfielder finished expertly inside the box, stunning Manchester United.

However, the game quickly got away from the Magpies.

Two goals from Anthony Martial, as well as strikes from Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford, sealed a 4-1 win for Man United.

Newcastle have been pretty secure at the back this season, but United were able to tear them apart all too easily.

Now, Everton will be looking to do the same at St James’ Park.

Can Carlo secure back to back wins?

Carlo Ancelotti’s start to life as Everton boss got off to a perfect start on Boxing Day.

The Toffees secured a 1-0 win over Burnley, following Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s diving header.

There were some clear teething issues early on, with the Clarets having a few decent efforts early on.

However, Everton would go on to dominate the game.

The Blues boasted 68% of the possession, taking 21 shots and managing five on target.

Meanwhile, they restricted Sean Dyche’s Burnley to just six shots, with none of them on target.

With that, Ancelotti looks to have taken Duncan Ferguson’s hard to beat base, and tweaked it to be more dominant and threatening with the ball.

That combination could see Everton become a force to be reckoned with under Carlo Ancelotti.

Though, it will certainly take some time before they are anywhere near challenging towards the top of the table.

Despite that, back to back wins would go a long way to closing the gap on the top six.

Newcastle team news vs Everton

Newcastle have struggled with injuries during the current campaign.

Jamaal Lascelles has been out for a bit, and could return early in 2020, but not in time for the Everton clash.

Matt Ritchie is also expected back in the new year.

Saturday could come too early for Ciaran Clark too.

The worrying news will be concerning arguably Newcastle’s best player this season, Allan Saint-Maximin.

Steve Bruce admitted recently that the Frenchman is still ‘some way off’.

Everton team news vs Newcastle

Everton have also struggled with injuries so far this season.

Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are long-term absentees, while players such as Fabian Delph and Morgan Schneiderlin have struggled with niggling injuries.

Alex Iwobi suffered an injury during the clash with Arsenal last weekend and is set for a spell on the sidelines.

Theo Walcott returned to the bench at Burnley and made a substitute appearance so could be in contention this weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti also confirmed on Friday that he will rotate his team for the Newcastle clash, with Michael Keane, Leighton Baines and Tom Davies all in contention.
