Newcastle vs Everton in the Premier League on Feb 8. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Newcastle vs Everton in the Premier League on Feb 8. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After picking up a huge win away at Leeds last month, Newcastle’s hopes of survival have taken something of an increase and now they find themselves taking part in another important relegation battle.

One that sees Everton make the trip to Tyneside and with the Toffees in a state of turmoil at present, defeat at St James’ will only thrust the Merseyside men deeper into a relegation dogfight of their own.

Under 2.5 Goals

Although Everton would not like to accept the fact, the realisation is that they have now been pulled into a relegation scrap and if they were to lose to Newcastle, then the Toffees would find themselves in a rather sticky situation.

Which means this game could be something of a safety-first approach for not just Everton but Newcastle as well and although the Magpies would love to cause more misery for the opposition, they are unlikely to land a killer blow.

Which means this game will likely be a do not lose affair, rather than a must win encounter and therefore, if like me, you think this game will end with under 2.5 goals in total, you can back this outcome at odds of 17/20

Newcastle Form, squad news, opinion

Although Newcastle still find themselves within the bottom three of the Premier League table, there is a feeling that the shipwreck that resembled their start to the season, is now starting to sail on smoother waters.

Of course, there is still an incredible amount of work to be done on Tyneside and after getting the better of Leeds before the international break, it was still not enough to see Eddie Howe’s men move out of the relegation zone.

However, the Magpies are now unbeaten in their last three league outings and in doing so have earned five points from the last nine on offer. Something that suggests Howe’s coaching methods are starting to take effect.

Much has been made of Newcastle’s riches as of late and with the January transfer window ready to slam shut, the club’s board are desperately trying to add to the two new recruits that have already arrived.

Of those, Kieran Trippier has certainly been a welcome addition in defence and his experience is starting to aid Newcastle at the back. Now though, they will need forward Chris Wood to break his Newcastle scoring duck against a struggling Everton side.

In terms of injuries and suspensions going into the visit of Everton, the list of treatments is rather busy at St James’ Park and with as many as five players currently injured, it is certainly something that manager Eddie Howe can do without.

With Callum Wilson out until the beginning of next month, Howe will hope that the quartet of Federico Fernandez, Issac Hayden, Joelinton and Jamaal Lascelles can win their own personal races against fitness.

Everton Form, squad news, opinion

If you were to discuss Everton’s plight a month or so ago, the feeling would be that there are worse clubs in the division than them and for that reason alone, they would be safe from the threat of relegation.

Then again, when you look at the recent evidence that has been put on show, Everton are quickly becoming one of those worst teams in the division and right now, they find themselves as part of the relegation battle.

A battle that at the time of writing sees them without a general and with no successor to Rafa Benitez yet to be installed, the next man in waiting simply has to be the right one for the club to survive.

Because although both Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney have been linked with the job, majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri is still tempted to look elsewhere and with Vitor Pereira also in the frame, this could constitute the biggest risk of all.

After being sacked by Fenerbahce last December, Pereira is something of a surprise candidate for the Everton vacancy and with no Premier League experience to call upon, fans will be nervous at the prospect of his appointment.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Newcastle, only Fabian Delph is injured at the time of writing, and he is expected to be out until March. However, there is good news in the form of Alex Iwobi’s return from AFCON.

History

As far as history is concerned, these two sides are regular foes within the confines of English football and when Newcastle and Everton go to war, it usually makes for a rather interesting clash.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Newcastle have won on 68 occasions, Everton 74 and there have been 36 draws

About the Venue

The Gallowgate end at St James’ Park is one of the noisiest football stands within England and although supporters of the Magpies have had little to cheer about lately, they continue to back their team from the first minute to the last.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

After taking the opportunity to go to Saudi Arabia, Newcastle will be relaxed and refreshed from their winter break and now manager Eddie Howe will look to build on the positive momentum of the past few weeks.

While momentum is something that Everton can only dream of right now and with the club continually going in reverse this season, they will need to make sure they hit the brakes before the relegation zone looms larger.
