Everton vs Newcastle Match Preview
Newcastle have confirmed their Premier League safety in style by thumping Arsenal last weekend and continuing their good recent form. Next up for them is a visit to Everton, where a chance to move up the points tally is on offer. This Everton vs Newcastle fixture will be played at the Goodison Park on Monday, April 23, so check out our Everton vs Newcastle prediction and betting tips.
The Toffees have had a mixed season so far, to say the least. Everton fans had high hopes of this season, but ahead of this Everton vs Newcastle United fixture the hosts are ninth in the table after 34 games (42 pts, W11, D9, L14). That’s not a bad position to be in, considering the fact that they were languishing close to relegation spots when Sam Allardyce took charge of the club. Everton have very little hopes of making Europa League qualification, but that should not stop them from aiming to finish in the top eight spots. In their last five league games, they have lost only once – winning two and drawing the other two – which should be a good barometer of their intentions to finish the season with a bang.
Newcastle have no such problems as they have put up an excellent display to defeat Arsenal and cement their position in the top-flight. They have now won four games in a row and start this Everton vs Newcastle United fixture tenth in the table. They are just one point behind their hosts of the evening, having played a game lesser (41 pts, W11, D8, L14). However, their away form isn’t anything to write home about as the Magpies have won in only three of their last 14 trips in the league, losing seven and drawing four of them. Coming against a team that has won in seven of their last 12 home games in the league, it could be a tricky encounter for the visitors.

Everton vs Newcastle United Prediction
Recent form points towards a good performance from Newcastle in this fixture, but their away form is a big question mark. Expecting the Magpies to recreate the same tenacity they exhibited against Arsenal could be a bit too much. Everton have their proud home record on display and this may mean at least a point for the Toffees. We are backing the hosts to come out and win the game, but the first betting tip is under 2.5 goals.
