Preview: Everton vs Newcastle United – prediction, team news, line-ups

Everton face a tricky fixture this week as they welcome Newcastle United to Goodison Park in the Premier League. 

The Toffees are currently under serious threat of getting relegated to the Championship this season. 

A five-game winless streak has seen them slip to 18th in the standings, having 28 points from 32 matches. 

They managed to earn a point at Crystal Palace last weekend, but Leicester’s 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers meant the Merseyside outfit dropped into the relegation zone. 

Sean Dyche’s men made a poor start to the Selhurst Park encounter but improved as the first half wore on. 

In the end, they held on for a point despite Mason Hogate getting dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 80th minute. 

On the other hand, Newcastle registered a stunning 6-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in a huge boost to their hopes of finishing in the top-four.  

The Magpies completely destroyed Spurs at St James’ Park, racing to a 5-0 lead within the first 21 minutes. 

Jacob Murphy and Alexander Isak both scored twice while Joelinton also earned his name on the scoresheet in the first-half. 

Harry Kane pulled one back soon after the restart but Callum Wilson’s 67th-minute strike meant the home side won by a margin of five goals. 

The latest victory means they are now six points above the Lilywhites in the Premier League table, despite having a game over them.

Holgate will be missing Thursday’s clash for Everton after his sending off against Crystal Palace. Meanwhile, Andros Townsend, Seamus Coleman, Ruben Vinagre and Dele Alli will also be absent as they are all nursing injuries at the moment.
