Newcastle United are back in Premier League action on Wednesday evening, as they look to stretch their unbeaten record in the competition to six matches. Everton will be the visitors to St James’ Park, as Frank Lampard’s side look to bounce back after losing their previous two.
Premier League Preview
It has been a fine start to the 2022-23 Premier League season for Newcastle United, as they sit sixth in the league standings. They could move closer to the Champions League spots in the league this week, as victory could put them up to fifth and just two points behind Chelsea.
The Magpies have been in excellent form over their previous five league fixtures, as they have won twice and picked up three draws. Newcastle’s unbeaten run was maintained their previous fixture, as they played out a 0-0 draw away from home against Manchester United. The Magpies had a number of clear scoring chances in that fixture to record the victory, including Joelinton hitting both the post and the crossbar in the first half.
Everton are still looking for points to move clear of the relegation places this season, as they sit just two points above the drop zone. Frank Lampard’s side come into this fixture having lost their previous two matches, while they have recorded just two wins from ten fixtures this term.
The Toffees were comfortably beaten in their previous league fixture, as they lost 2-0 on the road against Tottenham Hotspur. Everton failed to produce a shot on target in that defeat on the road, and they mustered just 38% of the possession. They will need to play more on the front-foot this week if they are to pick up a second away win of the campaign against Newcastle.
Newcastle vs Everton Head to Head
Newcastle has picked up Premier League wins against Everton in three of the previous four fixtures between the sides. Meanwhile, Everton has picked up just two wins from the previous eight matches that they have played against the Magpies, with the Toon running out as winners on four occasions.
Newcastle vs Everton Prediction
Newcastle has an excellent home record in recent months, as they have been beaten on just one occasion in their previous 15. We could see that run being maintained on Wednesday, as we expect Eddie Howe’s team to win the points.
