Everton vs Newcastle United Preview
Watch Everton vs Newcastle United Preview, as Everton hosts Newcastle in a big contest in a premier league meetings at Goodison park.
As everton is placed on the 18th position in the points table, Newcastle united is placed on the 3rd position of the premier league points table.
By this meeting, New castle will be aiming for the further movement in the points table and take a big step towards Champions league, whereas Everton is about to face a Problematic situation by the end.
After a Goalless draw in the selhurst park with the match against Palace, Everton had been out of losing and as a result they escaped them from slipping to the bottom of the table.
After the arrival of Sean Dyche, the club have been with three wins at the start of his arrival, but its completely different from before as they are now running a winless streak in five matches.
Leicester City’s win on Saturday means Everton enter the midweek set of fixtures in 18th, and they could be 19th by the time they play on Thursday.
Even though nine clubs are still in the mix at the bottom, it appears that the bottom five are starting to be left behind, as there is a four-point gap between 15th and 16th with just six games to go.
Despite defeat to Fulham in their last outing here at home, Everton will be glad to be back on Merseyside, after another failure to take three points on the road in the capital on Saturday extended their winless away run to 14 games.
That record puts even more pressure on their home games, and their next two could hardly be any tougher, with in-form Newcastle and an unstoppable Manchester City up next for the Toffees here.
Everton will look to take enthusiasm from their home fixture with Newcastle last season, which also took place on a Thursday night and saw them grab an unlikely three points with 10 men, following Alex Iwobi’s 99th-minute winner.
They find themselves in a similar predicament again this season, with a win essentially being a necessity, but that being their only win over the Magpies in six attempts leaves room for caution.
Meanwhile, Newcastle could not have prepared any better for this trip down to Merseyside after thrashing Tottenham Hotspur 6-1 on Sunday.
Team News and Injury
Dominic Calvert-Lewin made his long-awaited return to the Everton starting lineup last weekend following two-and-a-half months out.

Another big boost for the Toffees will be the return of Abdoulaye Doucoure after he served his three-match ban following the red card received against Spurs.
After missing the last two Everton matches with injury, Amadou Onana could also return in the centre of midfield.
Mason Holgate will be suspended after he was sent off late on in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Palace, and with Seamus Coleman expected to remain out, Nathan Patterson is likely to come in at right-back.
