Newcastle v Everton prediction and betting, stats, odds. In the championship match in England on February 8, the Magpies will play against the Toffees. Who will prevail in this game?
Newcastle have given up ground this season, and they’ve done so across the board. “The Magpies failed to even make it past the first round in the League Cup, after which they failed to live up to the fans’ expectations in the FA Cup, where they failed to get past a humble representative of English League 1 – Cambridge United (0-1).
The Geordies’ start in the Premier League was a complete failure and a place in the relegation zone. Even a change of coach during the tournament – Eddie Howe, 44, took charge of the Black and Whites on 8th November – has not helped matters yet. In 21 games they have recorded two wins and nine draws, 15 points and 19th place in the relegation zone.
In the last three rounds, Newcastle added two draws against Manchester United (1-1) and Watford (1-1), followed by a 1-0 away win against Leeds United.
Wilson, Fernandes, Hayden, Dammett, Joelinton and Ritchie, who has a knee injury, cannot play today.
Everton opened the FA Cup with an away game against Hull City, who proved to be a tough nut to crack. The Champions League side put up a stiff challenge that was frustrated only in extra time. The second leg of the tournament brought a more serious opponent, but Brentford were unable to offer any resistance (4-1).
In the Premier League championship, the Toffees scored five wins and four peaceful victories, bringing them to 19 points and 16th place in the table. Worryingly, their recent results in the AFL have only been one point shy of a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the last five rounds.
Calvert-Lewin, Davies, Doucoure and Delph, who has a thigh injury, cannot play today.
Representatives of the last five of the Premier League meet, which will add motivation and desire to get tournament points with a level-headed opponent. While the visitors have suffered a series of defeats, Newcastle have impressed in the last three meetings, which gives hope for this duel as well. We assume that the Magpies will be able to pull themselves together and win due to their immense motivation and the awful state of their opponent, which will give the team a chance to leave the relegation zone.
