Everton vs Newcastle Preview & Tips

This is a big game for both teams. Everton’s season has been hit by injury and Covid cases, while Newcastle have been woeful for much of the campaign and currently occupy one of the relegation spots.

In a tough game to predict given Everton's recent absence and the Magpies playing for the second time in three days, there is value on the draw.

  • Everton are winless in 10 of their last 11 matches (Premier League).
  • Everton are winless in 4 of their last 5 home matches (Premier League).
  • Everton have drawn 2 of their last 3 home matches against Newcastle (Premier League).
  • Newcastle are winless in 19 of their last 20 matches (all competitions).
  • Newcastle are winless in their last 9 away matches (Premier League).

Head to Head

The Premier League head-to-head between these two teams is extremely close. Everton have recorded 21 wins to Newcastle's 20 with 11 matches finishing in draws.

Everton Form

Rafa Benitez’s team have not played since a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on December 16 due to a coroavirus outbreak in the camp. 

The draw followed a 2-1 victory over Arsenal, which ended an eight-game run without a win, and a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Everton Team News

Everton are expected to be without Richarlison, Yerry Mina, Tom Davies and Andros Townsend through injury. 

However, the Toffees look likely to welcome back striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin to the squad after injury.

Newcastle Form

The Magpies produced an impressive display in a 1-1 home draw against Manchester United last time out that arguably deserved more than a point. 

Eddie Howe’s team had suffered three straight defeats against Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City before the point against Man United. 

Newcastle Team News

The Magpies will be without the suspended Javier Manquillo. 

Jamal Lewis, Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin, Federico Fernandez, Joe Willock and Paul Dummett could all miss out through injury and illness.

What time does Everton vs Newcastle start?

The match starts at 7.30pm GMT on Thursday, December 30.



Neither team have been in great form of late but experienced encouraging draws last time out. I'm backing this one to end in a share of the points again.
