Both are diving in the second half of the English Premier League table. Although not rated higher than the opponent, Newcastle United’s chance to win is quite large when coach Eddie Howe’s army is played at home. Especially when their opponent today, Everton is a “wild market”.
Just like last season, Newcastle United soon entered the spiral of the relegation battle. With 13 existing points, although they are temporarily ranked 19th, they are only 1 point behind the safe area, a distance that cannot be said to be far. Worth mentioning, in the last 5/6 matches in the English Premier League, this team did not win and conceded 13 goals.
However, it should be noted that today Newcastle United has the support of the 12th player. In the last 4 home matches, the home team at St James’ Park only lost 1 time to Manchester City, the rest were drawn. 4 and won 1. The injury to the top scorer Callum Wilson (6 goals) did not affect their collective play. The last time they welcomed Everton at home, Chich Choe defeated this opponent with a score of 2-1.
Unlike Newcastle United, Everton are getting 19 points and are ranked above 3 levels thanks to a better score (19 versus 15). Last weekend, the team nicknamed The Toffees just had an impressive victory with a bold score of 4-1 against Brentford. However, this victory does not have much value in terms of expertise when Brentford points to the rookie club of the English Premier League this season and is not too interested in the FA Cup front.
It should be known that, before defeating Brentford, coach Frank Lampard’s army experienced 2 consecutive defeats in the English Premier League arena against Norwich City and Aston Villa. Importantly, the performance away from home of the Merseyside team is quite poor. Specifically, they lost 5 of the last 6 away matches in the Premier League this season. Therefore, not many people dare to put their faith in Everton in this match.
