Everton vs. Newcastle United Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Everton and Newcastle United, coming off wins in their recent outings, are set to clash at Goodison Park in a Premier League encounter on Thursday.

Match Preview:

Everton, after a difficult period with a 10-point deduction and a heavy defeat against Man United, secured a crucial 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest.

Dwight McNeil’s fantastic second-half goal lifted the Toffees off the bottom, and they aim to continue their resurgence in a busy festive fixture list.

Although Everton has struggled at home, managing only four points in the Premier League at Goodison Park this season, they face a tough challenge against Newcastle, against whom they have lost five of their last six league matches.

Newcastle, buoyed by recent wins over Chelsea and Manchester United, are in good form. Despite a challenging start to the season, Eddie Howe’s side has won seven of their last 10 league games, climbing to sixth place.

However, the Magpies’ away form has been less impressive, winning only three of their last 15 away matches. Still, they have triumphed in their last three midweek fixtures, aiming for a rare back-to-back win at Goodison Park.
