Prediction for Premier League match – Everton vs Newcastle
Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: Newcastle Double Chance – 1.6
Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Under 2.5 Goals – 1.8
Newcastle Double Chance
Everton’s 1-0 reverse at home to Wolves on Sunday felt like a result of real significance and with relegation worries starting to take hold, the nervous-looking Toffees could struggle again on Thursday. A resurgent Newcastle lost for the first time in nine matches at Chelsea last weekend, though the Magpies are playing with enough confidence to bounce back at Everton. Back Newcastle to avoid defeat on Merseyside.
Under 2.5 Goals
Everton have looked alarmingly low on cutting thrust in the final third in recent weeks and the Toffees have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League assignments. Newcastle are defending stoutly enough to frustrate their goal-shy hosts on Thursday, though the Magpies are far from prolific themselves and under 2.5 goals has landed in six of their last nine league matches.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Everton vs Newcastle
Frank Lampard admitted that the supporters at Goodison Park had every right to boo their team off on Sunday after the Toffees slipped to a potentially damaging 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves.
Everton were second best for the majority of the contest on Merseyside and their eventual 1-0 loss was their fourth defeat to nil on the spin in the Premier League.
With just goal difference keeping them above water at present, it feels like it won’t be long until Everton slip into the division’s bottom three and a first top-flight relegation since the 1950’s is suddenly becoming a real possibility.
Just a couple of months ago, Newcastle’s position was just as perilous, however, a hefty outlay in the January transfer window along with the positive impact made by new manager Eddie Howe has sparked a major revival on Tyneside and a top half finish could be within reach before the close of business in May.

Newcastle lost for the first time in nine games at Chelsea on Sunday, though the narrow margin of their reverse (1-0) at Stamford Bridge highlighted just how formidable this new-look United outfit can be on their day.
Spirits are understandably high in the north east with the club’s coffers controversially awash with Saudi Arabia’s millions, and a jittery Everton team could find matching the Magpies momentum tough on Thursday.
The Goodison Park crowd will be baying for blood again this week and if the home side don’t start in a convincing manner, the atmosphere will turn toxic very quickly.
Newcastle have been robust defensively and extremely tough to beat since the turn of the year and having already avoided defeat on each of their last three visits to the blue half of Merseyside, the Magpies look a prime pick in the double chance market on Thursday.
Everton have kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 Premier League fixtures and you can always back the leaky Toffees’ defence to concede with confidence. Newcastle have notched against Everton in each of the clubs’ last seven encounters and you can back the Magpies to find the net again at 1.4 against the same opponents on Thursday.
Get Quick Rich
In a reverse of our safe bet selection this week, you can back Everton NOT to score at a plum-looking 3.5 on Thursday. The Toffees’ problems in attack have been well-documented of late and having failed to scored in four successive Premier League fixtures, they could struggle to penetrate a Newcastle rearguard that has shipped just three times in their last five away tests combined.
Everton vs Newcastle first goalscorer
Chris Wood opened the scoring for previous club Burnley when the striker last performed at Goodison Park in March last year and at 6.5, the New Zealand forward is a great option in the first time goalscorer stakes again on Thursday. Wood broke his duck for the Magpies at Southampton just a week ago, so he should be brimming with confidence against Everton.
