Everton x Newcastle – Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips 07/12/2023
Everton and Newcastle meet in Liverpool this Thursday, and the clash brings together the home team, who aim to escape the relegation zone, and the visiting team who seeks to get closer to the championship leader.
The top part of the Premier League table is becoming very balanced, but the bottom teams are getting further away from the relegation zone and Everton is now in a dangerous situation.
The team is first in the relegation zone with just 7 points, 2 below Luton, in 17th place, but already 6 below Bournemouth, which is one position above.
The team has 5 wins in 14 games, as well as 2 draws and 7 defeats, but the team ended up losing 10 points in its campaign, as the federation understood that Everton violated the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules.
Everton filed an appeal, but they are still in a delicate situation at the moment.
But the team has already started its recovery within the competition, it comes from an important victory in the last round and has lost only once in the last 6 games played.
During this period there were 3 victories in the Premier League, the last of which was away to Nottingham, 1-0, and also as a visitor, they had beaten Crystal Palace, 3-2.
During this positive period, the team managed to advance in the English League Cup, beating Burnley at home 3-0.
Everton is not a team that plays in possession, it has the third worst average in the Premier League, but it has an interesting vertical behavior.
Even with such a low average possession of the ball, the team manages to be the seventh most successful team in the league, reaching 14.5 shots per game.
But they face a tough opponent in this Thursday’s game, and Newcastle can, with a positive result, move up the league table.
The team appears in sixth place with 26 points and a victory could even place them within the Champions League qualifying zone.
In 14 games the team won 8 times, in addition to 4 defeats and 2 draws, having one of the best attacks in the league with 32 goals scored, in addition to 14 conceded.
They are also in a good moment, with 3 wins in the last 4 games and they won the last 2 clashes, beating Chelsea 4-1 and then as home team, they beat another team from the big six, beating Manchester United.
Score 1-0 for Newcastle, who scored the only goal of the match with Gordon, right at the beginning of the second half.
A game where the team had almost 60% possession of the ball, 22 shots against just 8 from the Manchester team, showing all its technical potential within the competition.
In fact, Newcastle also doesn’t have such massive ball possession, but a very interesting offensive game, which places this team as the third best attack in the Premier League, alongside Liverpool.
I believe they can seek victory in this Thursday’s clash, but let’s not ignore the great moment that Everton is going through.
Therefore, my betting option will be on the goal line for this match.
