Everton will entertain Newcastle United at Goodison Park on Thursday night as both sides look to secure a win in the Premier League. The Toffees suffered a poor 1-0 loss at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, so they will be desperate to collect all three points in front of their home fans.

Similarly, the Magpies suffered a 1-0 defeat against Chelsea but they will still take a lot of positives from that game, especially because of their solid defensive performance at Stamford Bridge that day.

Everton Vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics

Frank Lampard could set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and will be forced to make one change to his first XI for this game. The Toffees boss will ask his players to retain possession well in the opponent’s half and create some clear-cut chances to win this contest.

Eddie Howe is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few tweaks to his starting XI in midweek. The Newcastle manager might instruct his men to defend well and try to cause some problems for the opposition on the counter using the pace of Ryan Fraser and Jacob Murphy.

Jonjoe Kenny is suspended for this game after picking up two yellow cards in his last league appearance. Furthermore, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is unlikely to be risked in this match as he is still recovering from an illness.

Newcastle United

Joelinton, Joe Willock and Federico Fernandez are both major doubts for this clash. Otherwise, Howe has no fresh injury concerns ahead of this midweek game.

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett, Willock, Shelvey, Joelinton, Murphy, Wood, Fraser

Key Men


Jordan Pickford will have to make a few important saves if Everton are to come out on top in this game. Richarlison and Demarai Gray will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Everton up top.

Newcastle United

The collective performance of Joe Willock, Jonjo Shelvey and Joelinton at the centre of Newcastle’s midfield could go a long way in determining the fate of this game.
