Everton to win 3-1

Bet Now

Such was their fantastic start to the new season, winning their first four games and gaining a point from Liverpool, they still sit at the top of the league table despite their loss to Southampton last weekend.

The defeat was a day to forget for manager Carlo Ancelotti, whose side put in an uncharacteristically lethargic and unimpressive performance for the first time this season. 

They failed to force the opposition goalkeeper into a serious save all game. They will be desperate to return to winning form this weekend and face a Newcastle team who have shown little consistency so far.

The Magpies have shown quality at times, particularly during their two victories over Burnley and West Ham. 

However, they have also turned in poor performances against the likes of Manchester United and Brighton where they have failed to show up with any kind of intensity.

Everton will be favourites here.

Newcastle United Preview

Form Guide (all comps): DWWLD

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Have a habit of picking up points from tough fixtures

     Scored in all but one of their league games this season

Reasons to be fearful:

     Performances have not been consistent

     Everton will be aiming to bounce back strongly

Manager Steve Bruce has seen his side play very promisingly at times this season, picking up more points than Manchester United at present.

Unfortunately, these good performances have not been consistent and too often they have gone missing for large parts of games. 

While the addition of players such as Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser has improved them, as a team their form has been patchy, and Everton will fancy their chances here.

Newcastle have at least been positive in front of goal, scoring in all but one of their matches so far this season. New boy Wilson has been a great signing, for example.

But they will have to show greater resilience as a side to avoid performances like the one against Manchester United a couple of weeks ago where they were poor across the team. 

Star Man – Callum Wilson

Has twice as many goals as any other Newcastle player – he is the man in form and his goals are vital to Newcastle.

Form Guide (all comps): WWWDL

Reasons to be cheerful

     James Rodriguez hopes to be fit after struggling with injury

     Only lost one of their last 10 meetings against Newcastle

Reasons to be fearful 

     Richarlison and now Lucas Digne are suspended

     Captain Seamus Coleman is added to the injury list

Despite their defeat to Southampton last weekend, Everton will still be confident of continuing their fantastic form going into November. 

They are without a win in their past two games, however a point from the Merseyside derby shows progress upon previous seasons and remaining at the top of the Premier League will be a huge confidence boost.

Unfortunately, there are several key players who will miss out for them this weekend. Captain Seamus Coleman will miss out through injury, while left-back Lucas Digne joins striker Richarlison on a suspension. 

It remains to be seen whether James Rodriguez can shake off a niggling injury, but the chances are he should be fit enough to play.

Their opponents have a knack of grabbing last minute goals to avoid defeat, so Everton will be wanting to wrap this game up well before the final whistle.

Star Man – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Failed to influence the game against Southampton, he will be eager to continue his great form in front of goal.

     Newcastle will look to make things tight at the back

     Everton will miss Richarlison, but if Rodriguez plays they will be favourites

     Two or more goals expected

Everton will be keen to show that last weekend’s loss to Southampton was just a blip and that they can continue their red-hot form into November.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is in fantastic form and is likely to find the back of the net this weekend, especially if Rodriguez is fit enough to play, feeding those passes through the Newcastle defence.

Newcastle have popped up with crucial goals to avoid defeat, particularly late on in games, but Everton are likely to be out of sight by then.
