Newcastle United look to be sliding down in Premier League at an alarming rate and they will be hoping they can arrest their current slump this Wednesday when they host Everton in mid-week’s fixture.
Nonetheless, bouncing back against Everton will be quite a task for Rafael Benitez and his men given the Toffees will come into the clash high on confidence after raising the level of their game significantly over the last couple of weeks.
The Magpies extended their poor run of results on Saturday when they could not hold on to the early lead against Leicester City losing the home outing 2-3 at the end.
It was their seventh loss in last eight league outings which caused the drop to the brink of the relegation zone.
The lack of meticulousness at the back is the main reason for such poor form as the Magpies allowed three or more goals in four of their last five league matches.
The Toffees have really had a rollercoaster campaign so far in the Premier League.
Nonetheless, their defensive line has been rock-solid lately under the new manager Sam Allardyce.
The Toffees kept a clean sheet in three straight games in all competitions and they held the red-hot Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby at the weekend.
Everton lead the head to head tie by only three wins, but they’ve been dominant over the last couple of years.
The Toffees won six and lost one of last seven meetings with Newcastle United and they’ve kept their net untouched in each of last three meetings with the Magpies.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Sam Allardyce to continue his Everton rise and we just have to back the Toffees to take advantage of the momentum and clinch the spoils from St. James’ Park.
Alternatively, backing Everton to keep a clean sheet does seem to be a wise option at the odds of 3.50.
