Newcastle United vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: 8 February 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle upon Tyne).
Newcastle and Everton will lock horns fresh off their busy transfer windows. Both teams have been pretty active in January with an aim to shift their fortunes around after underwhelming campaigns in the first half of the season.
We all know about Newcastle’s new rich owners who did not make any spectacular transfers this winter, but decided to take a rather more conventional approach.
The Magpies changed almost entire back line, signing the likes of Kieran Trippier, Dan Burn, and Matt Targett in defense.
Bruno Guimaraes was probably the biggest signing as a lot of other more popular teams were hoping to sign the former Olympique Lyon defensive midfielder. The attack will be stringer for Chris Wood who came from direct relegation rivals Burnley.
Speaking of Newcastle, we have to say they have already shown signs of improvements in the recent fixtures. The Magpies thus claimed four points from the last two Premier League rounds, conceding only one goal in the process (against Watford and Leeds United).
Everton, on the other side, dropped to 16th place in the league ladder after a terrible streak of seven losses, one win, and one draw in the last nine league matches.
The board decided to react and appoint former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard as the new head coach.
Lampard will make his new Premier League debut on Tuesday when out-of-form Everton travel to St. James’ Park to take on Newcastle United who are only four points behind the Toffees in the standings.
Newcastle vs Everton Head-to-head
- Newcastle United stunned Everton with both home and away wins over the Toffees in the previous term of Premier League.
- Everton are thus winless in the last three meetings with Newcastle.
- Both teams scored in five of the last six head to head encounters.
Newcastle vs Everton Prediction
Everton lost six and drew two of the last eight Premier League games on the road. They have done nothing to hurt Aston Villa in the previous round’s 0-1 defeat at Goodison Park.
On the other side, Newcastle United will go into this on a high after shipping just one goal in the last two league games. Nevertheless, we still don’t trust the hosts that much either as Eddie Howe will certainly need some time to bed in the new arrivals. The draw is thus the best betting pick at the odds of 3.40.
