It shows how times have changed when Newcastle can go away to Manchester United and claim a well-earned point.

Yes, Manchester United had chances to win the game late on, but the Magpies gave as good as they got in the first half. It was a point that keeps Newcastle in the hunt for European spots in the Premier League.

Having won two of their last three, can they go on to return to winning ways here? With Manchester United playing Tottenham, three points could be enough to lift them above their previous opponents into 5th.

Everton have come full circle over the past couple of months, and are facing a tough spell right now. In their last six games, they’ve drawn two, won two and now lost two games consecutively, showing inconsistency.

Frank Lampard has certainly got a good squad of players to work with, as well as some positive results behind him, but it could just be one of those seasons where he must take the rough with the smooth.

Newcastle United Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Fully deserved their draw against Manchester United

     Have won three of their last four against Everton

Reasons to be fearful:

     Injury concerns continue for Isak and Saint-Maximin

     Is their squad good enough to play twice a week?

Despite only winning three of their 10 games so far this season, Newcastle find themselves on the verge of the top five positions in the league.

That is what a solid defence can give you, and while the Magpies haven’t won that many games, they’ve only lost once. 

Only City, Arsenal and Tottenham can boast the same, while Newcastle have the best defence overall, having conceded only nine goals.

They also have a good record to call upon against Everton, despite losing their most recent meeting. Their previous three games all went in favour of the Magpies.

Newcastle’s biggest concern will be injuries. Saint-Maximin and Isak remain unavailable, while it remains to be seen how a congested fixture schedule will impact Eddie Howe’s squad.

Star Man – Bruno Guimaraes

In the ‘battle of the Bruno’s’ at Old Trafford, it was Newcastle’s Guimaraes that looked the more in-form right now. The Brazilian is the heartbeat of the team and is excellent at linking defence with attack.

Everton FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Won their last meeting with Newcastle

     Very winnable run of fixtures before World Cup break

Reasons to be fearful

     Two defeats in a row are a blow after signs were positive

     Just two points separate Everton from relegation zone

Having gone six games unbeaten in the league, it will have come as a blow to Frank Lampard and his men to have slipped to two defeats on the bounce.

A 2-1 defeat to Manchester United was followed by an away beating by Tottenham, meaning that the Toffees are just two points clear of the bottom three.

On a positive note, the Toffees created a number of chances in that game, particularly in the first half, that should have resulted in a goal.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin only played 25 minutes from the bench as he returns to fitness, but you feel that eventually he’ll be the man to put those chances away. 

Against Newcastle, they’ll set themselves up to be hard to beat and hope to pinch something at the other end.

Star Man – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Whether the striker starts or not, as he recovers from injury, he’s still Everton’s biggest threat. If he comes off the bench in the second half, he could cause problems.

     Will be a tight game

     Everton must make their few chances count

     Newcastle favourites at home

Newcastle could continue to grow from strength to strength this season under Eddie Howe, particularly if injuries don’t play too big a part.

They now have options from the bench, although playing twice a week will take its toll.

Against Everton, they should have most of the ball and most of the chances in front of goal. Everton will be determined in defence, but whether they have the quality going forward remains to be seen.

The home side are favourites here.
